Need to Know
DO NOT PARK IN THE UPPER CRYSTAL LOT. They will chain a cement bucket to your car and it's a hassle, just park further down in lot B.
This slope holds snow pretty late since it get almost no sunshine. There are a number of chutes increasing in steepness the further they go up the ridge toward the summit. Once at the bottom, the skin up is a super short 20 minutes, giving you plenty of laps.
