Mt English with Stuart. It snowed several cm overnight which covered a bit of a crust which disappeared higher up. The snow skied quite well (at least in the trees - a bit of wind effect in the alpine). Was heavy below 1700m on the ski out. We did a lap in the trees and then climbed up to the ridge via a short boot pack. It looks like it would be easy to ski east off the ridge to the glacier and then head up towards either of the Mt English peaks. Also looks like there are heli runs on the west facing slopes from the ridge. Nice to explore up high though it was not as sunny as I expected (high pressure rolled in later).
