The news is you can still ski up there, so we went and brought back the beta in the form of some photos and a bit of reporting.
Well, yesterday in the 12,500 foot and above zone conditions began the shift to a warmer snowpack on the easterly reaches, with northwest exposures becoming hardened by melt/freeze and not ready to ski till later in the day. I had my eye on an easterly line, but when we got there the eggshell had softened and you could easily punch a ski pole into the facet layers lurking underneath like some kind of HP Lovecraft beastie. Nonetheless, by staying to some lower angled terrain and simply cruising around, we made turns and had a nice day. Dirt hike to snow from upper hairpin trailhead on Western Slope side was still about 20 minutes. Overall, snowpack is looking thin.
