5/22/16 Instructional student scramble in frequent light snow and limited visibility allowed for ice axe arrest, snow travel, and navigation practice. Snow started about 5000'. Followed Quicksilver Chair continuing SW to ~5600', west up wooded slope to bench on ridge at 6100', turned left taking ridge to summit, with slight deviation to north around steeper area ~6400'. On descent, found very nice glissade slope down to north starting about 6600', then plunge stepped down to Elizabeth Lake.
