Observed 24" of snow in leeward aspects at an elevation of 7700'. West faces above 7000' appeared scoured and bare to the ground, limited coverage. In sheltered south facing areas where snow hadn't been scoured, a stout breakable crust existed near the surface. Old snow snow was faceted to the ground, ski poles easily penetrating dirt. Below 7000' skiing was not possible due to low coverage, relegating our party to skin on the summer trailhead in and out of Hellroaring.
