Made an attempt at the North Couloir on Potosi today. Approached from Yankee Boy, the road is clear up to the governors basin junction. Snow on the east facing slope between coffee pot and Potosi down into the basin was pretty wet as we made our way down to the base of the Couloir (around 730 or 8). Didn't feel that we had the time to climb and ski Potosi before that slope was unsafe since we had to reclimb it. Hot day out there, ton of snow still. First pic is of the North Couloir, second one is of the saddle back up to coffee pot / Potosi. Wet slide likely happened the day before.
