Fellas having some fun on Ecstasy. It’s a good idea to stick closer to the summit today for some firm spring snow as conditions closer to the base have softened quite a bit. If you dip into Last Tango this afternoon, plan your exit low on Lower Sunday Punch. For tomorrow, temperatures will hover in the upper 30s and mid- to upper 40s, making for similar conditions as today, with a bit more sun.
