I'm just wondering if any of the current observers have seen better snow conditions on MW than there is right now? I'm not an observer, but I've been a groupie for several years and cannot remember anyone skiing down Trinity Heights and Gulfside to the edge of the Great Gulf as shown in video this week. Most of the skiing I've been aware of was on the Eastern Snowfields. I don't remember ever seeing Huntington Ravine so full of snow you couldn't see any ice except Pinnacle Gully!

Nice cornice in the first shot!

Amazing. Looks like this may warrant a hike out to Tucks next weekend to observe some skiing.

Thanks for sharing. Check out those cornices...I knew they existed.

What's more impressive is how the snow filled in the Great Gulf gullies...those are going to hold skiable snow for a long time.
