Does anyone have current conditions for the Crescent Glacier and the Crescent/Bugaboo Col? I'm looking at heading out there soon but have no idea where to check for trip reports besides here. I know the Bugaboos were closed for awhile due to forest fires so it seems no one has been up there. I'm just trying to see if I need to plan something else for a long road trip. I know it's late in the season..

Thanks!

Probably more so than B-S Col concerns, weather is going to be a huge crapshoot this late in the year. Even if it's dry, it's going to be way cold and snow and ice can linger in cracks for a long time. I wouldn't make the drive up there this time of year, doesn't mean it's not possible though.

Thanks Matthew! We ended up skipping it this time around.
