Yankee Boy road is open to the pit toilet. Great snowshoe/skiing conditions on Saturday. Shallow wet slab slides all over the place, but nothing running deep. Standard route packed out with steps. I ascended on the rocks from Lavender Col and dropped into the gully for the descent and brought about 3 inches of the snowpack with me and watched it run into Blaine Basin. Pretty exciting.
