Went up Clinton today. Still LOTS of snow up there. I didn't ski it, but a summit ski is definitely still in. Continuous snow starts around 11,600'. The road below there is pretty much a river.

I brought slowshoes, but did not use them...probably postholed less than 10 times the entire day. Was happy for an ice axe contouring above Wheeler Lake and on the final pitch.
