Mt St Helen's Mother's Day Climb 2013

Conditions were perfect on Saturday as most people chose to get ahead of the bad weather and attempt the traditional Mother's Day climb a day early.  There were reportedly 600 people on the mountain Saturday - the 100-permit limit doesn't kick in until Monday - and I believe it:

Conditions are a little more melted-out than years past when you could ski all the way to the Marble Mountain Sno-Park. The snow levels are similar to my 2011 trip, even though it occurred 5-6 weeks later.
