Mount Olympus can have some great ski-mountaineering, but it’s not for the faint of heart. Alpine climbing skills, steep skiing prowess, and an appetite for adventure (aka suffering and risk) are required. One can find consistent corn and avalanche-bed surfaces here during stable springlike weather patterns in February and March, especially in big snow years. There needs to be decent coverage at lower altitudes and low avalanche hazard. Expect some bushwhacking and down-hiking on all routes.
