    I'll be swinging across the state next week and would appreciate any intel on what's available for a short hike. I had my mind on Indy since I've never been there but a friend in Basalt speculated there might not be much left. Besides St. Mary, anything else that's closeish to the road and not terrifyingly steep? Thanks.

    Whats a short hike? Torreys isn't bad. Not sure what it'll look like in a week, but you've got Tuning Forks and Dead Dog as options.

    If you check out Torreys you can also do Kelso which is often over looked but is a super short hike and gives you an awesome view of Torreys.

    if you've never been to Indy, give it a drive and see what you see.

    Decent snow on conundrum over the weekend. Good freeze despite the warm temps so don't be shy about getting up high. Around 2 grand of continuous skiing. Did not suck for late June

    Yeah, getting there. The swarms of mosquitoes were a bigger inconvenience than the snow surface quality.

    skied Rollins Pass today. Sun cups are getting noticeably worse than last time I was out (7/3). I can also attest to mosquitos- got eaten alive when we got down to the lakes.

    Suncups this past weekend. The flats are cupped, the steeps are smooth and in between is runneled.


    Have fun and don't fall this time of year.

    Totally agree with you..Mosquitoes are the major problem here during snow.

    Any of you been tagging the summer snow stuff?

    How'd the surface been? Ye olde vertical seams, deep sun cups?

    Skyscraper was still good last weekend. Could also ski a little line from the parking lot down to the Bob/Betty lake trail, which added ~4-500' of vert to the day. Starting to get suncupped but not so bad it wasn't fun skiing.

    Cool

    That's always the classic.

    Take a look at Challenger glacier to the north?

    How's the road up from WP this year? Seems to get rougher every year.

    Thinking of getting some turns in this week or weekend

    Anyone get out this weekend and note some decent continuous snow? South Paw off Torrey's looks like it might still be doable based on some Instagram creeping. Left August a little late this year...
