On June 7 I hiked up Ram Valley for about 2 hours to get to the remains of the snow. I was able to ski up and over Bombardment Pass and down the other side a little ways. While you can't ski for miles on end, there is still a decent amount of skiable terrain. The snow starts around 4500ft. and was nice and solid. I headed back down around 10am but could have stayed longer. Due to the 4 hours of hiking though this is going to be it for me this year.
