Skied Baden-Powell on North and Northeast aspects yesterday. Left the car at 630 am and Summited around 9 am. Skied from the North east saddle just below the summit and continues East, descending the Northeast slopes ending in a gully visible from the parking lot. We were able to ski all the way down to the trail and walk 5 minutes back to the car. Coverage was minimal below 7500 ft except for highly shaded areas like the gully we descended. Really nice, soft corn laps can be had between 8-9000’. Below 8000’ snow conditions were very variable and turns were difficult. Super fun day with Adventure skiing.
Lower in the gully there was wet slide debris that appeared to have accumulated from multiple small wet slides. I would recommend caution on warm afternoons for wet slides, especially in higher angle areas with few trees, but overall conditions seem very consolidated and there was minimal sluff.
*Found a blue First Aid kit (hiker version) in the gully near 7500’* Email me at email@example.com if that is yours.
