Lots of powder up there per previous report. Despite the people up there, there isn't really a solid trench from the flats to the summit, more like a bunch of sloppy parallel snowshoe tracks chewing up a wide swath, like there was a race. Flotation highly recommended. Powder was consistent throughout the day. Some wet slides around and on st Mary's today.

Were you skiing down? I am curious what percent of this route you can ride down without hitting flat land when it is completely snow covered?

Saw skiers on and skiing from the summit, its in with several inches of powder coverage the whole way, although other ski CR mentioned small rocks. Even the sastrugi was soft.
