We lost a black Ortovox beacon somewhere between the North Halfmoon trailhead and the first half mile up the trail. Please call 402 304 1257 if found. Lost 6/4/2011

I plan to be up there the 18th! I will look for you! Was the road clear all the way to the TH?

Yes, the road was fully clear all the way to the trailhead. I intend to post a trip report tonight or tomorrow. Thanks for looking. We were coming down and one of our party stopped to switch from ski boots to hiking shoes and either removed his beacon and forgot to put it in his backpack, or dropped it while loading our car.

About what elevation and/or miles above the TH did you find continuous snow??

I suppose somewhere around 11,000 to 11,300, but it was melting pretty fast. We could see a difference in the afternoon on the way out vs in the morning on the way in. We skied from the summit down into the trees although the section in the trees was pretty miserable.
