Just pay attention to where you choose to build said kicker on the pass. The avalanche conditions are pretty much crap through out the state. Mind the hang fire above where you build your kicker and your landing. You should be able to find a safe spot but choose poorly and things could go from fun to deadly in seconds.

I haven't been that way in a while. I have a buddy in Gunni who tends to know that info, I'll see if he knows anything.

Expect the hoar. It's a hoar everywhere. I've seen it as thick as three feet to the ground to around six inches. It's prevalent all over the state. Hence, my warning. Sounds like you have a good idea on how to stay out of harm's way. There is definitely enough snow out there to go do what you are planning to do.
