Snow in the San Juans near Silverton is melting out quick. The snow is covered with dust in most places with a little fresh snow to be found in places, mostly up high. All signs pointed towards a stable snowpack on the south facing slopes of Grand Turk. A good freeze provided excellent climbing and skiing by 10:00. A summit ski is in via the south facing couloir and snow route finding can keep you on the skis to the car.
