May 6, 2019, Cascade Pass
WA Cascades NW (Mt Baker)
Arrived/started too late so we aborted attempt on Sahale. Road was still closed at Eldorado trail head. Ranger thinks it should be open all the way for this weekend. Slight bushwhack out of the parking area. Direct route melting out fast. Lookers right most chutes were starting to crack. Two left trending ramps were holding snow better. It appears there wasn't a solid or reliable freeze the previous night and we had variable conditions. We did not go above the pass and had some firm snow, great corn, breakable crust and heavy wet down low.
