:) We go every year the first weekend in June. Last year we climbed and dropped the west face gully and rode all the way to the car at Bunny flat no problem. I would suspect this year wouldn't be any different.

I will be headed up the first weekend in May to climb Casaval Ridge and will drop you some info as far as snow depth etc. Tried Casaval in February and the snow depth at Bunny flat was about 6-8'.

Let me know if you are into going with us in June.

Jim

Depends which route you do. For west face, June is probably the latest you'd want to go. Late May is probably prime time for that area. On the eastside however, you can sometimes get good turns into August! Though July is more typically when it starts to turn sour. The eastside is nice because you avoid the crowds, and it can be a nice run straight from the summit. Though west face is nice too.
