Snow

Trail snow-covered at times - gear and expertise recommended

The forest road to the trailhead had some fairly gnarly potholes--be a bit cautious.

The trail started with no snow and it gradually built up until we reached the summit, which was still covered with some fairly deep (but sorta-packed) snow. We dealt with a bit of postholing near the summit, but it wasn't too bad. Snowshoes would have been helpful, but honestly I probably wouldn't have actually put them on. Gaiters were super-useful. Poles with snow baskets and microspikes were great to have, though not necessary (I'd try to have at least one of them, though).

Timing:

  • Arrived at trailhead - 10:10am
  • Summit - 12:15pm
  • Left summit - 1:15pm
  • Back at trailhead - 3:15pm
  • Total hike time: 4 hours (and 1 hour of summit hangout). We're fairly fit/fast, but we weren't booking it.

Cool! This makes me hopeful for Pilchuck in another week or two, based on the conditions you described <3!! Thank you!
