Good conditions. Can ski from parking. A bit icy on top. Crampons really help.

Aaasen and I took the same trip on St. Patty's day. Didn't leave any Green Snow, but had a helluva time!

A quarter of the people who read your note were up there today. Classic day with easily skiable snow from the car to the rim and the usual mix on the way down but generally good quality if you kept to the SW facing smooth areas. Clouded up at the top as I got there so quick transition and no photo. Thnx for the beta- I wish more people posted reports instead of just lurking.

Here's a photo from yesterday at Mt St Helens. It felt really good to be up in the mountains for the day. Skiing back down via the main gully offered a chance for me to sample the different aspects as the snow changed with elevation. There was a friendly vibe on the mountain, even while people were being respectful of physical distance.

Freedom of the Hills.
