Good conditions on the Union Creek run above 5500', but late afternoon came the leading edge of a major storm (wind, snow, visibility). About 5" new on a firm rain crust. No recent avalanche activity noted, although the lifties were doing a lot of bombing. There was old debris near the base of Union Creek and on the N side of Bullion Peak. 7mi, 4200vf.
