... from Adams on Tuesday & Wednesday (each day the same route of South Climb up to ski down SW Chutes, then back up to Lunch Counter, followed by skiing down through Crescent Glacier and finally switching over) and Hood for Thursday dawn patrol (just laps on the groomers).

Executive summary = quite nice snow conditions overall on Adams, with a final downhike of ~1,200' to ~1,700' vertical depending on your appetites for boots-on portages (and Hood still grooming to within ~250' vertical of the parking lot).
