Hiked up to the summit of Mount Werner while skiing at Steamboat Ski Resort. I had rode up the Morningside lift and then headed over towards the East Face run, which meant taking my skis off for a short hike up a trail that skirts the northern side of Werner's summit that is studded with communication towers. So my friends waited for me while I made the short trek to the actual summit. I suppose there are nice views, but the weather was cloudy so I couldn't see much of the surrounding mountains. Afterwards we skied down the East Face run, and oh was that heavenly with all of the powder that was loaded onto it.
