Enjoyed a great post work lap on Red last night. Easy skinning up Commonwealth, followed by efficient booting up top half of the upper face allowed me to summit right after sunset. The ski down was excellent on slightly overripe corn, and intact snow bridges made for a smooth exit. There are some holes opening up on the upper slopes, but if this heat relents I would bet you will be able to ski car to car up Commonwealth for at least a few more weeks.
