Photos of Backcountry Ice Conditions

With the Ice Park closed, we have been getting lots of calls about the condition of the backcountry. As of this writing, February 20th, almost all of the backcountry areas are in great shape and getting climbed regularly. Here are some recent photos that show the current conditions:

Bridal Veil Falls on February 18, 2017.
