More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Skied Rock Creek Road from the sno-park to Lodge turnoff to check conditions. "Dust on crust" -- about an inch of new snow on top of the crusty but still fully snow-covered road made for an enjoyable short tour on skinny skis. No signs of instability; still patchy coverage on E & W side slopes above the road/creek and mostly bare talus slopes visible through the clouds on Mt Morgan. Light SE breeze and varying cloud cover/blue sky turned to light snow and colder temp by 3pm, turnaround point at the Lodge turnoff.
