We parked on Loveland Pass and skinned the standard hiking route to the top. We were able to skin all but one short section on the traverse around Sniktau's false summit. Visibility was bad and the winds were howling on the final ridge to the top. The skiing down Dave's Wave was good powdery snow up high, although the leeward slopes below the wave looked to be loaded. We stayed on top of the wave (skier's right) because of the flat light and lack of wind loading until lower down where it turns to the skier's right. Then, we skied a steeper pitch which had about 4 to 5 inches of light, not wind affected powder on top of a crust. Below that, we skied the Ironing Board to treeline which had the same powder on crust conditions. Overall, some pretty fun and safe skiing.
