Grand couloir is still in, but is getting thin (considerably less full than last year around this time). In view of that, we chose to ski the East face. Due to cloud cover and wind the snow never warmed up, making conditions "interesting" on steeper terrain. Massive amounts of red dust is a major factor, likely contributing to rapid snowmelt.
