Observation Date: 12/01/2018

Standard approach up SE ridge to the top, able to skin by the summer TH.

Climbed through low clouds to partly sunny skies, light snow started to fall in the afternoon


New Snow: 3-6″

Avalanche Activity:
We dug a pit at 8500′ E facing, and found 85 cm of snow on the ground. We didn’t get anything to propagate cleanly in our ECTs, but did find a suspect layer ~30 cms down, likely the ‘Thanksgiving’ crust that looks like it could cause some problems in the future.

Other Comments:
Great early season coverage and great skiing to be found on top 1k of little jo.
