    Default "ski" season

    I was hiking a few years back and observed a 2-300 foot patch of snow still in the ravine and a skier was making a few turns on it - I believe it was around July 6th or 7th. Not what you would call prime skiing, but skiing nonetheless.

    I think it was August 1996 when there was a huge area of snow still left in the bowl. I was there sometime between the 6th and 10th of August. It was house sized, maybe 20 feet tall with a giant undermined arch.

    I saw much the same in late August 1979 when I was last there

    If you think the floor of the ravine is safe from avalanches....its not.
