Headed up to Jimmy Junior Travel between 2000-2250m was difficult with 10-15cm of variable sun affected snow sitting on top of a thick crust. Travel after 2250m improved quickly but even on polar aspects snow was moist by 11:00. Snow pit at 2300m E Asp, Alp, HS 175cm Results ECTP 17 down 75 on facets We observed numerous solar releases off of Jimmy junior up to size 0.5. Ski quality was slightly better in sheltered terrain down low but snow was still moist for most of the descent.
