More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Went up to Pika Peak today, good skinning conditions up Duck Pass, then nice corn down to Duck Lake around 10:30am. Skinned up the west flank of Pika with a short bootpack in the middle where it was a bit steeper and the snow was firmer. Lots of snow on the ridge and an easy skin to the peak.

Skied down the North Couloir around 12:50pm and conditions were perfect--boot deep light powder. Zero wind affect, zero signs of instability.

Nice powder heading down from Duck Pass at 2:00pm. Snow was a bit variable once back in the trees, but not terrible.
