The Flying Cloud ski trail
Having a little time to spare after work and not happy with being out of shape, I decided to hike the Flying Cloud ski trail on Mount Institute. Stabilicers helped with traction on the packed snow and slush.
On my way down, I checked out the summit area of Wilderness Peak - its amazing how quickly it has grown in in the past 5 years.
With the exception of lower Flying Cloud and part of the Outback ski trail, everything was covered with a decent base of snow.
