More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Afternoon tour on corn-like snow up Rock Creek Road to Mosquito Flat. Widely varying weather conditions from sun to partly cloudy to full cloud cover and light snow. Coverage on east and west slopes of the canyon above the road remains sparse. No signs of instability except the many rocks that have fallen down onto the road. Snow coverage was more consistent upcanyon above the pack station, but never looked to be more than 1-2 ft deep and didn't invite adventuring off the road.
