Road is clear to the lower Blue Lake (patchy to the dam). Snow was solid in the morning so we just booted across the basin. The couloir was fairly firm on our way up & with our timing (11:30ish drop in) was corned up nicely where the sun had hit for our descent (read - the sun doesn't hit it all evenly). We took the left at the Y & had a good 100+ foot dry section to negotiate. Concentrated jump turns got us down the couloir & creamy turns were found on the apron and in the basin. We were able to ride almost to the upper lake. A few sections of snow along the edge of the road were also rideable.
