A short outing (because of other time constraints), but fun:
http://picasaweb.google.com/jshefftz/May29Snowfields

Quick conditions summary:
-- fairly smooth, although not perfect
-- softening would have the perfect level had the snow been perfectly 
smooth, although given the lack of perfect smoothness, a bit softer would 
have been ideal
-- as is typical up there, the forecasted winds were indeed vicious at the little 
parking area for the snowfields, but just below that, it varied from almost calm 
to just city-type/non-mountain windiness
-- ne snowfield is ~650 vert if you're skinning and can take advantage of the 
dogleg, although if you're hiking, realistically it's more like ~500 vert since the 
dogleg would be a pain
-- can traverse out for a tour to almost connect w/ the se snowfield, which is 
a bit under ~400 vert (or almost 1000 vert from top of ne snowfield to bottom 
of se snowfield)
