Info: Route was clear and dry to about 13,000 ft. with snow to the saddle. Snow was mostly 6" or less with a few drifts to 12". Additional snow above saddle from about 13,300 to 13,400, again 4” or less. Snow is hard packed in some areas and traction was nice to have but not an absolute requirement. Above this the remaining route to summit clear and dry.

Info: Lots of snow, and pretty soft for the majority of the route. The snow in the basin was pretty supportive, but I would highly recommend flotation. The face itself was already soft when we hit it at around 7:30 and made for slow going all the way to the summit. Road is clear to the turn off for Burns Gulch, the Burns Gulch road itself is still quite snowed in.

Info: Via Burns Gulch. Road dry to just above treeline. N aspects: unconsolidated powder up to a few ft. Some small base level avies. Quite a bit of postholing under the face. Scoped out a couple nice lines on the N face and the ridge/pt to the W. Needs more time. NE ridge: deep powder to 3 ft up to the saddle, ridge is mix of firm snow, optional scramble, or thin powder over talus. Jones Mtn S ridge: firm snow near the ridge and mostly talus. Jones W/SW aspect: thin easy to moderate couloirs in, 600 ft with connectable firm snowfields another few hundred. Nice and firm. Punched up to a couple inches at most.
