Six of us went up to get July in the bag, with low expectations.  We found excellent 1" corn on a surprisingly smooth surface on the Paradise and Cowlitz Glaciers between 8000' and 6500'.  We walked with skis from Fourth Crossing parking to 6900'.  There are many cracks in the snow, more like mid  to late August in a normal year.  Be careful out there.

The best part of summer skiing is napping on a warm rock.
