There isn't much snow in the lower elevations, but up high things are doing OK. The snow just barely softened for us in the afternoon, and we spent a bunch of time hanging out waiting for it.

Here are some photos, with a few from my cheap fisheye lens.

Nice to see some BCD stoke. Mind telling us which chute that is?

Ecobrad, that's the Powerhouse area. That chute branches off from the main chute, and is more east facing.

bcrider, the exit isn't that bad. It just requires a bit of walking. You should see what we were trying to avoid! On the main run out there is a pretty big iceflow that spans the entire slope. So we unbuckled and walked over to the next ribbon of snow.

Thanks - nice to see the Dana Plateau up close this season. Shouldn't all those big rocks be covered with snow?
