Took a trip up Maverick yesterday. Topped out just as the weather front was moving in.
Snow was good. Shin to knee deep fluff and super fast. A few photos to document the tip . . . nothing spectacular.

nice pics. I might be headed that way thurs/fri. I guess I could check the weather channel but...do you think condition will be worthwhile then or are you are supposed to get very wet snow and wind like the wasatch?

Forecast has 30" (@ 9,000 ft) by Thursday. High temps at 10,000 ft are forecast to be around 27F. Ridge top avg wind speed to be 30-35mph with gusts as high as 70mph. Avy danger "considerable" today. Hope this helps.

I love TR from the Tetons! Thanks for the stoke and cool photos. I miss Wyoming and wish it was a closer drive from me.

If only I could've headed over your way after my Ketchum trip, Duane! Dammit! But, you'll be happy to know the turns I got yesterday were the best all year so I ain't complaining.
