Pretty light snow year up in the Range, but still some good skiing to be had. Have been up there a couple times, most recently this past Sunday, and the couloirs are buffed out (no runnels) and still in good shape though the east face is fading pretty quickly. Have been getting some decent freezes, so the bootpack and corn conditions have also been good. Have photos if interested.

That sounds interesting to me.
