|Lost and Found:
||Airline below treeline was mostly packed snow with some icy sections here and there. Above treeline it was a mix of bare rock, snow, and ice, (decent amount heading up the cone) we wore our beater spikes for this reason. Lowe's to Thunderstorm Junction was snow and rocks, with less ice. Gulfside Trail had decent snow coverage until dropping down to the hut from the Airline junction as it became more rocks and ice before back to snow just before the hut. Osgood was more rocks than snow. Valley Way was packed snow with some short but easy icy sections.|
Mild temps barely any wind, easy conditions to head up above treeline and stay warm. The dogs had a blast!
