By "Primo" conditions is that hard snow all the way or ice?

While the conditions on Whitney tell one story, I had a buddy ski Ritter and Banner on gorgeous conditions last weekend. He said the river crossing was thin and would be gone soon. Skiing out under the thundersnow helped them quite a bit.
Higher elevations (except windblow) seem to still have a good base (from two weekends ago):

Way to pick up the phone instead of actually going out to find out about conditions yourself.

Instead, you turn to others for corroboration of your supposed findings.
