Pete, No issues with thin bridges or hidden cracks. There were a few slumping/depressions hard climbers right, but those were easy to steer far clear from.

Tree cutting had the gate closed in the am.  It was open on our way out.

what a rad video of a great day!

pretty cool to ride the whole IG in pow with no road sledding required.  i'm glad i was able to get out of work and represent as the token snowboarder.

here's a few photos and a 30 second video...

As of yesterday (probably got obliterated the day after this post) the pow is gone. It has returned to the more typical volcanic fare of ice, breakable crust, and schmoo. Skins on is already likely pushed back to 6000 ft from 5300 ft. The scenery is still of course top notch.

That looks insanely good. So much better than when I was up there in mid-August.

Anyone know what the deal is with White River campground in the off-season (e.g. now)?  Wondering if I can park there overnight.

Road status as of today is the road is open to White River Campground, estimated closure is on Oct 31.
https://www.nps.gov/mora/planyourvisit/road-status.htm

You can park there overnight but you still need wilderness camping permit (self issued at White River Ranger Station).
As for camping in the campground itself when it is closed, well that is a bit of a grey area.
