I hear half dome is usually a good run that time of year.
Good luck and don't forget your SPOT...

Yes I believe he did.
What I think he was referring to was your urge to go back country skiing while having NO knowledge of avalanche safety.
That is an excellent way to get yourself killed, so I suppose he was commenting on that. Not very nice though.
I'm new to this site but I can see that the regulars don't want to tell you the truth either. Back country skiing without any knowledge of this terrain or snow conditions on the West coast may not be the wisest activity. Sorry to burst your bubble but avalanches can and do happen on peaks even in July. I live in Oregon so I'm sure it's not the same as Cali. but I also know a bit about back country skiing and I would advise that you find someone local to take you out if you insist on skiing out here. Good luck and have fun.
For the most part avy danger will be very minimal in June/July for that area. Again this depends on the year. I would suggest you gather some info just before the trip. Many here will be able to provide you with good solid beta as the time comes near.
