Silas and I got in some August turns amid snow squalls and sun breaks. The snow was very good, as Andy reported for the day before, easing my fears that bad snow was going to be the norm until fall. Probably would have been even better on a warm day. Good snow coverage began at ~6200', and the lower Paradise Glacier area was well covered. Will it last 'till September?

There are photos from this trip here.
