Skied Emmons with some good friends in good weather.  Route remains in great skiing shape with few holes.  The corridor area was particularly sweet.

Inter Glacier remains closed up with a few depressions starting to show.

Glacier Basin Trail is about 40% snow. 

Taking full advantage of the bird weather at Schurman:

Thanks for the great pics!
Three of us were up there the weekend before and got some nice skiing in.  One of my favorite trips.
Get it while you can!

You were lucky with the weather. We skied it on Saturday and got pretty much everything except high winds: beautiful sunrise, milk bottle whiteout, thunderstorm (my hair was buzzing!), snow, hail and rain. But the skiing was great still.

That's it for the season! Well at least for me.
