Worries about the cloudy morning turned to delight at the resulting cool walking temperatures to 7200' where we finally found snow at the bottom of Paradise Glacier.  There is much less snow than only a few weeks ago and lots of blue ice. After two pm the skies cleared and we skied a couple laps from 8000' to 7500' and then the thin white snow finger to 7200'.  215 Greg? 

The stash is no longer worth skiing this summer for us.

Wait. Now this doesn't mean your streak is over right?

I waited until Saturday and found some semi-smooth patches just above and just below the Nisqually Chutes for about 900 total vertical.
