Top gate was still closed. After the first stream crossing ran into snow pack, looked continuous. Snow was super soft, still not freezing at night. Had my splitboard on my back, tried to start skinning, but ran into dirt about .25 miles in. Intermittent snow and road all the way to Loch, lots of water. Crossed the damn and up to the tundra, snow was melting fast and very intermittent. staying on snow or trail was really hard to manage until ~12000'. Then fairly continuous snow. Skied(snowboaded) down ~1200' vert in really soft snow. Booted the rest of the way out. Kind of no mans land right now. I would wait a week to melt and dry all the way out.

Trail over to Saint Marys looked really intermittent snow and dirt.

Road up to top gate is really nice, few puddles, all rocks are in good shape.
