Comments
Comments: Generally 0-3" of snow from near base lodge to summit. Ground generally frozen. Barebootable, but I found Microspikes to be optimal. A few avoidable patches of blue ice on ski trails. A few snow drifts above treeline, but snow as of a frozen granular quality due to refreezing. Snowshoes not yet needed due to extended bare spots and general lack of snow base.
