Left the base area about 6:45 in low clouds and broke out into sun about half way up.  Had a nice window for an hour or so.  About 6" of new at the top of lower International (backcountry gate area) but with the next clouds moving in I didn't linger.  Low clouds over night meant that the base didn't freeze so it was a little soft underfoot.  The first rollers came down before 8am and there was a fair sized release off the cliffs, but it didn't propagate anything.  A decent but not great ski down.  You can ski to the patio by picking and choosing.
