Hiked from Grouse Vista to the ridge where Eds Trail runs on east side (did a small part Eds trail, but mostly stayed on west side). It was pretty cold and windy in the low 50's, and summit was hiding in low clouds by the time I got close, so I stayed lower for the views. Either because of the weather, of being a weekday, but mountain was very quiet, felt like real wilderness.

Averaged about 3mph so I think this can qualify as a hike (also more xc skiing is work than hiking). It was snowing pretty well the entire time, great powder at 16F, really enjoyed it. I forgot a phone in the car, but we got some pictures on the drive.
