Eastern Sierra conditions from the air

I flew my paraglider from Walt's point (Horseshoe Meadows road) to Bishop last week and there are a lot of snow back there. It looks like winter, not summer. Got to 14.5K feet at one point, view was spectacular. Here is a video:

I found that video to be pretty damn amazing! From my computer screen it's spectacular but I'll bet it doesn't even come close to the perspective you get when you're up there.

p.s. could you please fly the southeast side of Shasta this week to check out the conditions on the Clear Creek route for me? :)
