Condition Updates  
Route: Northwest Gully

Info: The road is still blocked by snow 2 miles below the trailhead. There's patchy snow to the meadows past the TH and then continous snow to 13,000'. Didn't summit today but have included a few photos. Even starting the ski at 13,200', I got 2,500' of ski vert. Good times. 
Route: Northwest Gully

Info: Mt. Lindsey showed very little change in snow conditions from the last trip report (which I believe was on Nov 5, 2010). For those not familiar with the trail, the snow fall and snow drift has cause the trail to become obscured in the following locations: 1) After the crossing of the Huerfano river 2) Climbing out of the gully at 11,700 ft. (note, this is the first gully. NOT the gully on the North Face of Lindsey) The loss of the trail climbing the steep face of the gully can make the going tricky. The gully on Lindsey‘s north face is not filled with snow yet. The scree is loose and very ready to slide. I recommend staying just off to the side and scrambling up the solid rocks that parallel the gully.
