Road is snow covered about 1/2 mile or so above the lower 2WD lot. Continuous snow from there to Broken Hand Pass Saddle. Ridge approach to 13.3k downclimb is 50/50 snow/dry. Hoping to ski the south face, but appeared out so did not attempt to summit. Photos

I never saw the gully on the south face, but it appeared as though there was more snow near the apron of the Peak. I would guess there is more snow there, perhaps skiable. Would be very interested to see conditions up there if you go however
