The Wallowa’s still haven’t received any new snow in awhile. I checked out Aneroid Lake and Twin Peaks this past week, trying to find anything to ski.
Aneroid Lake had some good snow at lower elevations, but anything above treeline is windswept and bare.

It’s hard to have a bad day of skiing. Twin Peaks came close though. Hiking up through thick brush, dead and down, and scree fields just to reach sub-par skiing can be frustrating. Beggars can’t be choosers during the early season I guess.
I suppose a guy could have skied from the summit, but it didn’t look like too much fun. Especially with the conditions. It was definitiley a connect the dots game, most of the slope was ice and breakable crust, but there were some soft slab patches. Looking forward to doing it again with better conditions.
