Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

On 3/18 we toured back into the McGee creek drainage. We were able to drive to within about a 1/4 mile of the pack station providing pretty good access. There was enough snow coverage to ski to/from the car without hitting too many obstacles however East facing slopes above the valley fllor had pretty low tide conditions. Lots of rocks and willows. Found good snow conditions in an E/SE facing slopes from about 12,000 ft down to 9,000 feet. Didn't observe any cohesive slabs or signs of wind loading on that aspect.
