thatOneMonoskier and I used the Black Cloud Trail to approach the ESE face of Bull Hill to claim a first split-monoski descent of the peak. We were successful. The wind was absolutely horrendous up top, whipping way harder than the forecasted 25G40. Approach shoes on mostly dry trail for the first mile or so. Skinned from there to the top, and were able to ski all the way back to within a mile of the TH before losing snow and returning to approach shoes. This peak is not commonly skied, and this approach was never documented as being used, but I'd recommend it.

EDIT: I forgot to add that there were 2 pairs of boots hanging out at the trailhead, so if you know a lady and a gentleman that are missing boots, they are still sitting there

Split monoski is truly the superior mode of backcountry travel.
