Hello everyone, I skied out to Washburn point this Sunday and thought I'd post a brief trip report and a few pics for those who are interested. Left badger at around 10am and I got to Washburn at around 1. The snow on the road was definitely thin in places but better than last year. Unless we get a big storm I could see GP road opening in late April or very early May. Weather was great, warm enough to be comfortable but not warm enough to turn the snow into slush. Good day for some skiing.

Thanks for sharing the link to the photos.

How crowded was Glacier Point Road with Nordic skiers? Were there any other people at Washburn Point while you were there?

Nice pictures, thanks. I think I recognize that bare spot on the road from last February, on the climb from Bridalveil Creek?

@plawrence

It wasn't crowded at all especially once I got past the horizon ridge trail head. Nobody else was at Washburn while I was there but a few people arrived right after me

@chickon

Nice. I took a few panoramas on my phone but it didn't do a very good job at stitching them together

@ttilley

Yea thats it, there were also few others up near Clark Range View. It's melting fast, there were many more bare spots when I was coming back vs. heading out.
