July 4 Paradise Glacier via Mazama Ridge
« on: 07/06/19, 07:36 PM »

A bit delayed but possibly, for some, useful information. Paradise Valley Road finally opened. Arrived at Fourth Crossing TH with NO cars in the lot at 920. Wow! Some blobs of disconnected snow up to Mazama Ridge but had to carry to Sluiskin's Chair. Then continual snow the whole way. Smooth glacier with increasing raised tracks. Crevasses easily avoidable. You may be able to do the high steep exit (skier's right) off the glacier with a brief step over a few rocks... but not for long.

We only saw one other couple all day. Pleasant conditions. I guess all the cool/smart kids went way south. No camera available.

Looking forward to the next ski trip.
