General Conditions

Here are some pics from the summit looking down at the final headwall on the Hotlum/Wintun route on Monday, June 20th. Conditions looked smooth and nice for skiing. This ranger was wishing he had his skis and a ride out from Brewer! It's a long way to carry the skis, but could be worth it for 2,000 feet of nice snow off the summit. The snow was soft at 11:00 a.m. on Monday morning. This week will be hot though, so you'll probably want to descend earlier than that.
