Got a late start and arrived at the Pass at noon. The road construction between Tipsoo Lake and the Pass can provide a 30 minute delay which it did. Traversed past Naches to the NE facing bowl and climbed the corniced ridge line. The snow was mushy and a couple of donuts were about 2 feet in diameter. The slopes were stable but the late start caused sloughs on the steeper angles. Still plenty of snow but the construction will definitely continue for the remainder of the ski season.
