General Conditions

Snow was firm and mostly supportable in the morning.  Downslope winds with moderate gusts above 8500.'  Snow quickly softens to sticky once the sun gets on it.  Sticky snow down low.  Decent skiing depending on aspect between 10k and 8500.'  Very thin luge track in gully below treeline with lots of rocks.  Take it slow and work on your pizza skills to avoid core shots/head injuries.  Can still gingerly make it most of the way down the the Bunny Flat meadow with skis on.  Please be careful not to trample vegetation.
