We travelled up southerly aspects towards the false summit of Green Mountain. We parked on the road about a mile from the trailhead as snow line began around 2800ft.
Below the treeline there was minimal new snow, with mostly firm and moist melt form layers. As we emerged out of the forest near the treeline we found up to 15cm of new snow which became moist today except for above ~4800ft on northerly aspects. Snowpack heights ranged from 100cm to 150cm as we moved from south to north aspects. Throughout our travels the snow was generally right side up with a few notable crusts on south aspects, however only the mid-pack melt freeze crust from Nov 18 was present on northerly slopes. See pit images for more details.
Cornice development and wind slabs were clearly visible on ridgelines lee to the southwest above treeline. Additionally, there were some signs of old, shallow storm slab avalanches visible on northeast aspects around 5800ft that had been covered by the most recent snowfall.
Skies were obscured in the morning and increasing (up to moderate) southerly winds cleared the skies in the afternoon. Air temperatures hovered around freezing all day.
