Great trench to treeline and the ridge proper for booting, but it had softened considerably in the afternoon. Stashed snowshoes just above treeline and used them for most of the descent from there. Windy as all get out today - was knee deep in soft slab for much of the way above 13000ft. Coverage on the upper mountain seems pretty good and a Vail group skied from the summit. But I doubt that coverage will last the week.
