Glacier National Park - McDonald Lake Area
Route Description: 

Snow cover still exists at all elevations, although some bare spots are starting to show up in the Lake McDonald area below 4000'. Deadfall was becoming visible below 5200', and presents a safety hazard going forward. We dealt with serious glopping on our wet skis and skins from lower elevation on our ascent between 5800' and 7200', making for arduous travel. Above 7200' temperatures were cold enough to avoid this issue.
