April 25, Stuart lake
« on: 04/26/10, 08:09 AM »

The gate at bridge creek cg is open and you can drive within a quarter mile of the 8 mile th.  Stuart lake trail is skinnable from the th with over 2 feet of snow still,  but getting rocky in places.

Pretty much every north-facing path between 4500 and 6500 had avalanched in the last week it seemed, so don't plan on finding good skiing at that elevation. Other aspects may have gone, too, but I didn't get as good a view of them.  Steeper south slopes were bare up to 6500.  Conditions still look good in the alpine,  though. Maybe folks who skied the colchuck glacier can chime in about what they found.

Ski cut a soggy south facing slope at 5500. Nothing moved except the rocks I hit when I bottomed out. Doh!
