Went up the Snake couloir (from Blaine Basin) and the snow was in great shape. Descended via the Lavender Col and the snow was getting really soft, so start early. I saw people ascending the Col at around 11:00 am, way too late! Pic 1 - a close up with Snake Couloir on the right. Pic 2 - Looking down Snake Couloir from the turn past the constriction. Pic 3 - the Lavender Col from Blaine Basin. Pic 4 - SW ridge.

Did you happen to see what condition the SW ridge was in?
