Nice hike up to the lakes, but from there was not a fun day. Above 4000 feet there is easily 6-10 feet of snow, and I forgot snowshoes, so I was posting every 5 feet for the next 2 miles. The trail on the ridge isn't well marked, and hard to follow. I got off trail and had to bushwhack my way back to the western side of the mountain before I finally found the trail and descended. Without snowshoes, the ridge is nearly impassable.
