By the end of the day, absolutely no snow at the base of the auto road, yet 
still seven inches up on the hill (where not affected by wind or water 
bars).
Main part of the mountain was very windblown though, with water bars that 
made even skinning up difficult.
Timberline had good cover, although snow was quite heavy, and the frequent 
water bars (although ok for skinning, since they were narrower and mainly 
w/o running water compared to the main mtn) created lots of interruptions 
(except for when I was more brave and jumped across them).
After several runs, switched gear and xc skied on the Picnic Loop and then 
out to Bolton Lodge and back.
Saw only 11 skiers on the alpine trails and 1 set of xc tracks . . . but 
many, many out-of-place wedding guests.  (That married couple will have an 
interesting photo album for their mid-autumn wedding that ended up with mid-
winter conditions!)
