Hiked to Camp Muir late on 8-31 to get in an August ski.  Walk up was uneventful but nice, and encountered snow just above Pebble Creek.  Snow was interrupted by small rock bands at around 9000 feet on the  hike up (hikers right).  A nice walk up in sunny, warm conditions.  Camp Muir at 5PM- rest/water and prep for 20 minutes.  Saw 5 or so groups planning on a climb tonight- hope they beat the weather.


Excellent smooth corn right off the base of Muir for about 900 vertical feet- stayed skiers right and had a bunch of nice fun and  fast turns. Some off the best skiing all year (for me) relative to temps, practically no sun cups and buttery smooth/very fast snow.  Good stuff!

Down lower, conditions deteriated a little to older dirtier snow, but not that bad (relative term).  A bit bumpy in places, but better than no snow to be sure.  Had one scramble for 100 yards, but otherwise skied from Muir to 7500 feet.  Half excellent and really fun, half OK and better than nothing.  Good early Sept ski for a couple more days.  Have digital pics - e-mail if interested.  Have fun!
