Anyone been able to check out snow conditions around dream or emerald lake lately. Thinking of doing a lap on either the dragons tail or tyndall this up coming week. The plan is to hike up and check it out and do a stability test, but if anyone knows if the conditions are horrendous ill look elsewhere.

I haven't been up there to have a close look, but the wind has been howling and the snow blowing. I would expect cornices and wind slab. There was a climber triggered avy reported at Black Lake this weekend on the approach to West Gulley, no injuries.

CAIC reported a skier trigger avalanche in the Dream Lake Chutes on the 28th. Looks like some nasty crossloading is going on for sure.

We're hoping to go up and check out Elevator or DT but our hopes aren't high for actually skiing much.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
