Trail is more or less dry to Willow lake. The snow in the up the north slope was nearly continuous to the ridge, with a few dry spots. Was able to glissade most of the way down.
The Avenue to Kit Carson was completely covered in snow, and snow in the second section was already very soft before noon. We turned back as it was unsafe to cross at the time.
