Doesn't get much better than this! Road walk from gated road at 9,100' to Revenue Mine is bare. Continuous snow after that. Track in place and is bootable in the morning, flotation highly recommended in the afternoon. Plenty of snow in the SJs but evidence of wet slides is plentiful. Crampons and ice axe recommended - Lavendar Col is in great shape. SW Ridge has plenty of snow on it right now.

Gorgeous pictures! There's a lot more snow there than on some of the other ranges.

Did the Birthday chutes look skiable? How is the snow situation from the summit?
