This reporter, accompanied by the Lady in Red, began the usual route from a packed campground at 6am. Perfect weather. No skinning all the way to the summit due to hard conditions all the way to the summit. Steady snow from the top of the Crescent. Tons of folks, (most with very small packs or fanny packs) even a five year old, on route. Ski from summit very bumpy--saw the bottoms of a few tele hero's skis with their heads firmly planted. We found SW Chute in primo conditions except bumpy at 75% point and then lots of rocks (very warm in chute). Got an additional 800' with some scramble nonsense then the big scramble and cross mtn trail back to regular climber's trail.

My opinion is it is too late for this due to the amount booting from end of snow but each person chooses.
