Climbed from the summit of Conundrum (See other conditions report).
The ski is in from the summit with plenty of snow still at the summit.
Started descending a bit before 10 - the snow was still very solid all the way through the Couloir - not obvious signs of instability. Once in the basin the snow was very buttery and nice until tree line where there is a dust layer which will slow you down and give a nice base grind to the skis. - You can currently ski within 1/2 mile of the bridge at the stream crossing.
