The road into Grizzly Gulch road is free of snow past the Northwest face of Torreys. There was one giant mud hole that I did not want to take the Tacoma through. Looks like someone else had to get pulled out. Parked here and walked maybe 10 minutes uphill to stream crossing into couloir. Continuos snow from near the bottom to maybe 150 vertical feet from summit. Snow was good if you stay skier left all the way down. Started a few point release wet slides that moved at a snail‘s pace. 2 inches deep at most. Great Day even though we started late, about 0630.
