Really soft snow all day today, despite a light freeze last night. Mostly good, continuous snow from Isabelle glacier to summit. We got a late start but the weather was cloudy all morning long so the snow conditions were stable; if the route had been in sun we would have turned back at the couloir entrance. Started at 5:30am and the approach took us a bit longer than we anticipated, 2 hours from trailhead to glacier. 7 hours total car to car. We glissaded from near the summit to the glacier and made it down in about 15 minutes. Seemed like perfect ski conditions.

I climbed the same route today and saw your tracks. That's a steep glissade!
