Full trip report:
http://stevensong.com/ruby-mountain

Took advantage of Jake and Trace's recent trip and condition updates. Snowshoed this route last Tuesday with Trevor T, Natasja Y. and Vlad M. as a mixed BC/WA team. Not a lot of information online but to my known this is the standard ski route up Ruby Mountain and I should say it should be the standard snowshoe route up the peak too. Took us 7.5 hours round trip with an hour's summit stay so that says how efficient it is.. There isn't a lot of steep terrain other than the last stretch before SE Ridge. But a year ago on the same route the huge cornice collpased and stepped down to the deep weak layer. Met a solo skier on the summit who actually witnessed that catastrophic avalanche event..
