Tincan May 2012

Skiing from the road is still available at Turnagain Pass.  Tincan pullout has a few feet of snow in the meadow at the road.  DP and yours truly found fresh, warm snow up high on northwest aspects, and slushy snow elsewhere.  We enjoyed sunshine from noon to 2 p.m. when the wind picked up and snowy clouds moved in.  Visibility remained good while we ascended back up to Tincan Ridge from lower Todd's Bowl.  Snowpack was firm with a few exceptions on extremely steep rollovers (cliffs in the summer) below 1500 feet elevation.
