Had a wonderful trip on Horseshoe yesterday. A party of 4 of us parked right at the 11,580 4WD point mentioned in Roach's group due to a large snow bank.

After the snow bank the road was dry in places with similar snow banks scattered here and there. We climbed a snowfield that crossed the many switch backs on the road above treeline. Once we gained the ridge we stayed on the ridge up to the summit. We wore crampons on the way up and snowshoes on the way down.

On the way down 2 of our party skied the Boudoir. Boudoir looked pretty good with a nice continuous ski to the cirque lake.

Thanks buddy for the CR! Noice. If anyone is wondering, the couloir is in good shape. The top choke point is getting a bit narrow, though 189 skis side slipped through with room to spare. Monitor for rocks hiding under a little bit of snow esp in the lower third.
