Snow starts at mile post 2 with lots of wet slushy snow and some icy spots. At around 2.5 miles the slush fades away and powder snow (a few inches) starts layering the trail. Postholing knee deep is a common occurrence at mile post 3 and beyond. Highly recommend bringing snowshoes for the last mile to the summit. At around 3.5 miles the snow can get waist deep in certain areas. The snow is more compact at this point so postholing is less of an issue. Once at the boulders leading towards the summit the snow is easily a few feet deep and again postholing becomes an issue. Lots of grey foggy skies for a view from the summit this morning.
: Lots of debris on the ground and debris falling from above
: Extremely wet slushy trail on the first 2 miles of trail
: Lots of snow on the last 2 miles of trail.
: Snowshoes would be advisable for the last 2 miles of trail.
