Hey Fritz, we skied some good snow in the bowls between the back side of Jasper and Neva last weekend. Quick, dry approach from 4th of July. The Neva couloirs also looked good with an early start. Mega-cornice on top of a couple couloirs... maybe they fell during the week. I've pics at home if you need 'em.

I'm a dry condition person, but here's some pictures taken 6/21 that may help others out. Here's a low res pano taken from fourth of july mine.

Well never mind. Apparently I can't figure out how upload images.

It turns out my image was to big, then it was too wide.

Oh well. Pretty sure this won't be useful at this resolution.

Did anyone get on Mt Toll over the weekend?

Hey Ricky,

Was that you on the summit? Nice chatting with you. I think I may hang up the board until October now.

Forrest, that was me. Nice talking with you guys too. We missed watching you descend, but we saw your tracks. Looks like you had fun! We did manage a fun glissade down ourselves.

And you were very generous with the beer!!! :) Not sure I would have been so generous, had I carried some up. :oops:
