If you have intentions of hitting GOS, make it soon. The usual low trail problems will be evident later in the week. The two lowest snowbridges over stream crossings might last to Wednesday, certainly not to Friday.

The first alternate* uptrack will be mandatory by Friday. The sunny pitch the alternate uptrack avoids was just skiable so plan on the skier's right twig-world bypass on the way down. The main trail snow bridge on the flat where the alternate up departs probably did not survive Sunday. The right side curved bridge at the same spot still looks good for another week.

The Big Dip crossing will soon be a walking affair as the snow bridges got hammered on Sunday. Skiers left through the rocks might last 'till Friday or Saturday.

Some of the mid elevation sunny slope issues are just starting to peek out but trail cover is way better than expected. One of the mid elevation traverses is already a bit of pinbal skiing, but should hold through next Saturday.

The gullies are very full, seasoned GOS skiers will get another three-four weeks. The finicky won't.

Although I did not check it, the GL looked well covered. My bet is the Northern end puddle will surely be deep and the bog bypass will be required soon.
