You get an awesome view of Hurwal Divide from the Imnaha highway, and every time I see it I think of how good the skiing must be up there. At 9,776′ the northern peak of the divide is the seventh highest in Oregon, which sweetens the pot a bit.

Ran across a set of tracks which I can only guess are   wolverine. Anybody with a better eye ID these tracks?

The skiing was pretty good. The first 100' was rock hard, then turned to a few inches of enjoyable pow for the rest of the 2500' descent
