Skied the main north face couloir today. It still has great continous snow from a few feet below the summit down into Missouri Gulch. Conditions today were a few inches of blown in powder in the upper 2/3 of the couloir and soft snow and corn below.

Thanks for the info... how much of the approach can be skinned?

We never used skins since the snow was firm in the morning but you could use them from about 11,900'-12,000' all the way up to the steeper stuff near 13,300'. Plenty of continuous snow right now.
