Toured out of June Mountain to the negatives yesterday, and ascended via the Hourglass Bowl. In shaded areas on the approach the snow was quite variable featuring a variety of breakable and supportable crusts, and a surface hoar lingered throughout the day even as the temperature rose. The Southeast facing upper portion of the hourglass bowl was firm and heavily textured, as was the Solar Bowl. Surface conditions in the solar bowl can best be described as skiing over a coral reef. The 'coral' is certainly skiable, but be sure to utilize caution. The steep treed slopes below Yost Meadow actually hold some residual powder, but be wary of the small patches of crust that tend to linger around the bases of trees and in areas that receive direct sunlight.
