That's a unique and nice view from the edge of DDF, we skied in there for two nights camping once. You might ask the rangers though often times they are completely useless, and even with bad, old information. At that lower elevation, yes, the snow might not be any good, but then that's part of the challenge, bc.
You can wait for more snow, it'll still be there, and if not, the 10 mi. one way ski to Glacier Pt. is a must for any cross country skiers.
