We parked at 11,200, right below the Leavick townsite. We were on snow the entire way to the base of the couloir, however we had a nice hard freeze and snowshoes remained on our pack for the entire approach. The bottom 1/3 and top 1/3 of the couloir were in perfect condition, whereas the middle 1/3 still had some small pockets of unconsolidated snow. There were some good glisades off the standard route for our descent, however when we hit tree-line the snow turned to mashed potatoes and snowshoes were needed. Even with them on, we still did some occasional post-holing.
