Final winter conditions report for 2015 (from me).

Yep, the mountain is still there. Good trench from the Hatchery. Snow was pretty stable in the morning and no snowshoes required. The warm afternoon was a different story, bring snowshoes or swim (saw a few postholes so deep that I thought I should dig down to see if anyone was buried under there). No winter difficulties on the ridge between Massive and North, just a long, slow slog.

3 more days. Those with some free time this week should take advantage of the "as good as it gets (in winter)" conditions.
