Imran, Tim and I completed the Chiwaukum traverse north to south on 5/23/20. Bivyed at the TH, left shortly after 4AM. Briefly battled slide alder on the forest road up to the Swath but were booting snow by 4400'. Continuous snow on the traverse; a lot snow up high still. Climbing the north side of Snowgrass and skiing off the summit were the highlights. Skied Chatter Creek until 4800'. ~13 hours and 9K'+/-. Ski and boot crampons, whippet and ice axe.
