St Mary's/James Peak Conditions?

Post by hootenatty » Tue Dec 10, 2019 11:04 am

Anyone been up to St Mary's recently? The latest condition info I've found here is from 11/14. Wondering if it would be skiable this weekend, and what the rest of the SE slopes to the summit of James looks like.

Can't speak for the lower conditions, but the route from above St Mary's to James peak is pretty wind blasted and dry this time of year, typically skied in spring conditions

Was thinking about this. I have some new skins to test this weekend and wanted something near Denver. Should I just head to Berthoud pass?
