Went up Jimmy junior to ski some corn snow. We where a bit late but the slope was mellow enough that we weren’t to concerned although we did miss the corn snow and got some semi isothermic slush skiing instead which wasn’t ideal. We saw some large glide cracks across the way on observation sub peak and also a large fracture line of a size 3 on the steep N face of Vulture peak. We also saw bear tracks up there up to the first main bench in the alpine.
