We're planning a trip 8/23 start date and wondering about snow conditions in the upper basins and over these passes.
We both have significant off trail experience but limited snow experience. Likely would not be bringing mountaineering boots, crampons or ice axes. Could bring microspikes.
Main concerns are steep snow fields that might be icy northfacing, or postholing down into talus gaps, but perhaps there are other issues we should look for too.
Thanks for any intel you have! Enjoy your high country season.
