Getting the car packed up with all the gear is much more of a challenge since having the 2 year old.

|Yay! Fresh powder!|
Generally, my motto on the descents while skiing is "fast, dangerous, and outta control," and I was somewhat worried that with all the elevation gained, it would be a difficult descent. But getting back down was no problem, as the snow was perfectly fresh groomed. The last time I had been on this route, it was clear and icy, which was too fast for my abilities at the time, but this time the fresh powder enabled me to carve wide curves and get around the switchbacks as needed.
