    Lots of snow in the Presi's

    Greetings from the summit of da Wash where I am leading the first MWO Edu-trip to get up the Auto Road since the big storm. If you were thinking about skiing the Presi traverse (there was a thread here somewhere, I think), now is the time to do it. I have not seen so little exposed rock up here since the April Nor'easter a few years ago. Spectacular sunrise this morning, with light winds around 20 mph, temperature around 10 F; next three days are looking promising, but unfortunately I will be in Colorado (spring break).

    Great pics!

    Some great pics over on Tuckerman.org Great picture of the cornice above Huntington Ravine. We don't seem to get the cornices here in the east that they do out west. Nice to see:

    Yes, from the Obsy, we could see the huge cornices above North and Damnation gullies, but could not see the tops of Yale, Central, Pinnacle, and Odells, so be careful out there.
