Beautiful day on Saturday.  Road 13 is clear to within 0.6 miles of the the Latrines at about 3150 ft.  A few trucks push about a tenth of a mile farther, but it will take a couple of weeks to get close via car.  You can start skinning about a third of a mile below the Latrines, but will need to take of skis to cross the bridge.

The lower part of the river has less snow than I expected.  We had to take skis off about 4 or 5 times on the ascent/descent to cross the river branches.  Staying on climbers right helps.

Just a few open crevasses on the way up.  The snow was probably the best I have seen for skiing from the head wall all the way to the car.  It stayed pretty consistent, but obviously got thicker down low, but not nearly as bad as I have seen in previous years.

Have at it.
