We left the trailhead at 7:30am with fog and limited visibility. Found a nice chute on the north end of Heedlee Basin as we waited for a clearing. Thankfully a blue hole arrived around 11-noon en route to the summit. Snow is still smooth and not too sticky.

how was driving Sunrise Mine Rd?   A recent report on WTA.org made it sound like there were some washouts that only a high-clearance vehicle could handle- curious if you think an Outback would have any problems.
