About a 4 mile ski in; trail head at 5200 feet above sea level, top of the glacier at Anvil Rock is 9,500 ft asl
The video was taken from 8,000 ft asl to 7,000 asl, above these mountain goats (2 nannies, 1 yearling, 2 kids)
My timing was good, going up with ski crampons on defrosting frozen corn and coming down on 1-2 inch penetration with the shallow sun cups nicely softened.
