KC avenue is loaded up really thick with snow right at the start where it meets Kirk couloir. Bring traction, it wont melt out till summer 2021. Photo shows it being wind loaded with fresh snow, my tracks were nearly filled in after 30-40 mins. At least while I was there this morning, snow was being transported into that section of the avenue at 1-3 inches per hour. I didn't take the standard north slopes up, but they looked thick with snow from up on top. No signs of anything N facing melting much, if at all
