Boudoir is in pretty good shape still. Added a nice boot pack up that I believe someone behind me used as well. At the rate the snow is melting, may only be there for 2-3 days but hey, better than nothing. The couloir itself is a little bony towards the bottom but overall, in pretty good shape. The bottom quarter depth is not very much as my axe kept hitting rocks for a bit but the rest seemed like it was in good shape. No runnels forming and no signs of sluff/wet slides in the couloir itself.

Certainly possible to still ski from near summit down to the lakes but after that you will be hiking as all of the other snow in the basin is very sporadic. Took the northwest ridge down and bummed I didn't bring the board for this trip but oh well, next time! Happy to send pics to anyone who needs them, feel free to reply to the report or reach out via IG.

Semi-good freeze overnight with 6AM start, summited around 8:45 and back down to the car around 10:30. Really nice quick day before the storms moved in.
