Comments
Comments: Ascended via Basin "bushwhack" (very well re-established trail) and Liberty Spring. Snow started just below the campsite - fairly consistent and deep (1-3 feet) monorail from there to treeline. Deep snow between the peaks (1-3 feet) with postholes surrounding the monorail (also some extended patches of bare ground, but majority of the trail was snow covered). We were able to boot, however if the snow was any softer, snowshoes would have been necessary between the peaks.
