Skied Big S Sunday after Birthday Tour on Saturday (lotsa fine corn there). In primo condition. Three of us were able to ski down to 3700' using the route staying just east of the Silverstar Creek for the first/last 1500'. Some north facing semi dry powder in last 1000'. A little stick problems. Snow up to last 30' of true summit-good steps. Avy danger minimal as weather was cooler than predicted. The wide gulley at appr 7400' not filled yet with debris--will probably be soon as lots to slide above it so beware. The usual ab fab views, should have had the camera. Start 700a finish at 330p with relaxed pace.
