I left my home at 5AM, Trail head at 6, Aasgard Pass at 9:30, one run and I was home at 4:30PM.  I recall someone on here saying they ran the entire loop in 4hrs 20 minutes.  It took me 3-1/2 just to get to Aasgard.  Totally reasonable day trip from Wenatchee, but the return on investment is pretty slim.  I climbed from 3300 at the parking lot, to 8500 at the top of the pitch I skied.  Then I got a 623 foot run.

There is still snow, but not much.  Here is the view from near Aasgard Pass.


And here is the view from the shoulder on the north slope of Dragontail


On the way up, I heard several times "there's no snow up there".   I was happy to find what I did.  I'm not sure I can recommend this as a dedicated trip, but if you're going anyway...  take your skis!
