Road from La Plata TH clear, could get up to about a half mile before the McNasser Gate before a large snowdrift blocked the road. McNassser basin about half snow, half melted - most snow was consolidated so that, coming down in afternoon, post-hole to thigh at start and finish of each snowfield, but walk atop the snow easily in between. The snow is melting fast, though.

Grizzly couloir showed slide debris at the bottom and part way up, still has continuous snow though it looked icy & crusty. That basin was much snowier - consistent snow around Grizzly lake and stretches of snow further down. Road was closed (sign said it would open mid-June) which is why we did the route from McNasser.
