Forest Service Road 504/503 is plowed all the way to the Equity Mine.

Snow on the west side is consolidated spring snowpack, skiing was great (and continuous from the summit down the North Yawner Gully). North aspects around timberline are sugary, deep, slabby and prone to sinking. This is mostly in dense woods so it's relatively safe, if annoying. Take skis or BIG snowshoes. I can't speak to conditions across the slopes around/south of Point 12,562, as we skirted around it to the north.
