Comments
Comments: Gorgeous day out. Blue bird sky, no breeze until the summit where it was brisk and required layering but we managed to hang for 45 minutes taking in the views. Road walk on packed snow with trace of lose snow on top.


Trail is packed snow with a trace to 2 inches of powder as you ascend. Ice on the top kept us away from the foundation. Very easy and quick hike in these conditions.
