As of 5/23, you can drive to within 1/3 mile of the Esmerelda Trailhead. There is a short carry at the start of the trail and then continuous snow!
It was hot on 5/22 and then cloudy overnight, so there was no refreeze below about 6k. Still we found good corn on the east slopes of Fortune around 10am and south face around 11am.
Skiing the east bowl.
The lovely south face glades.
