    I finally ticked off one of my bucket list items and hiked to the top of the North Pole. The snow conditions were, um, less than stellar. Heavy clouds rolled in just as I started the hike up. Too bad as other aspects were skiing great.

    Pali was mixed. Too much chatter for my taste. East facing stuff was fantastic.

    Yep, I was just saying to my wife that I wish every spring was like this... everything is so green. Let's just hope some of it continues into the summer.

    Agree. The green is so stunning right now.

    Excellent corn harvest today at the Basin. East Wall is still open but Pali and Beavers are closed.

    The longer the better this year. I always like to compare a few trails in town year to year to see their melt patterns and it's really going now, though!

    Went to the basin today. Sun, wind, dark ass clouds, snow. Things are melting out pretty good down low but they have been doing a bunch of harvesting and have more to push around, no lake reveal yet. With the warm week ahead I have a hard time imagining they will be going past June 6th

    Quick FYI beta in case helpful for anyone... Skied Citadel (north collar) this AM. (East/norheast facing.) It did freeze last night, but not really enough to lock it up - was plunging through a good bit on the climb up. And the middle is pretty strewn with prior wet avy debris. Another freeze tonight should help, but then trending warmer.
    We shoulda skied off the ridge lookers left, much cleaner without surrounding rock walls having sent big rollerballs down. Main north collar still was fun, but had to work the sides on an already narrowish run
    Oh, and about a mile dry hike in before continuous snow - but that snow is on the other side of the creek which is running pretty good

    Today was about as nice as a day could be. Glorious weather. Glorious corn. Saw no one.

    ^^^ Nice, was that on Parnassus? We were maybe a spec in your first pic...
    Somewhat related, a couple groups got Keplingers in last weekend. Probably doesnt hold till next Sat with things warming up 2nd half of week. The snow coverage may stay in, but dont know re booting up 2k of south-facing after a 7+ mile hike/skin. But on the list!

    Spectacular day at the Basin. Good freeze overnight and the snow is turning to corn slowly, which is nice. Better than going to slush in one hour. Good coverage up high....wonder if they’ll extend from June 6th?Click image for larger version.

    Recon has confirmed no lake. First run was spicy to say the least, re frozen bumps was wake up call off the top but eventually warmed up for a big bowl of mashed taters.

    Dam, it was fun day.

    What’s your gut feeling from what you saw? Will they close down June 6th or get another weekend in?

    Herman required about a mile hike in on dry trail, then continuous snow starts on other side of the creek - or stay on trail another approx mile before enough snow to skin

    I don't see A Basin pushing past the 6th, they could if committed but they will run out of rope trying to block off the bare ground.

    I was looking for the disc baskets!

    Skied the y on ypsilon this morning. Just about solid snow above 10k'. Excellent freeze last night made for just about perfect conditions, but the runnels and chunder are starting to get bad. Such a fun line! The snowpack in RMNP is looking really fat compared to elsewhere in the state.
