Thanks, very helpful! Was this looking down the South Fork of Big Pine or the North Fork? Looks like on some aspects the snowline was pretty close to your elevation at the trailhead.

This is looking to the south fork drainage... ...there is no snow at the trailhead but it seems to start at 8500ft or so...dont quote me on it...anyway,there is lots of snow at elevation...it wont be powder conditions of course...Just go for it!
