Leavitt Peak Professional Review and Guide
"This superb midwinter tour is one of the easier trips in this guide and is an excellent introduction to overnight winter camping. Pass by Koenig Lake and ski west up the broad ridge to the summit of Leavitt Peak, the highest peak in the area. On the approach many of the lower ridges may be heavily corniced. There may also be an impressive cornice on the summit ridge, as this area is hit by high winds during winter storms. Stay well back from the lip of these cornices. From the summit you will have an unobstructed 360-degree view of the terrain and the many snow-capped peaks in the area. Far below will be the snow-covered Sonora Pass Road."
