"I was happy to have made it down without incident. The whole trip people were begging me not to try to ski the mountain. One climber even offered to carry my skis down for me. Amongst the other climbers, there wasn't much belief that it was possible, but I knew it was within my abilities. I didn't get to ski off the summit, but skiing the first descent of the bottleneck and shoulder was incredibly satisfying."
