|Peak:||Mt. Columbia (14er)|
|Date of Information:||02/11/2012|
Driveable to Harvard Lakes TH with SUV and some luck - deep snow. Trench is back in to treeline; snow depth varies from bare ground to 32". Snowshoes not needed once you get above the big hill at treeline. The ridge was mostly dry. Most of the snow on the ridge was crusty and supported weight. No evidence of any avy danger; the only questionable slope was the one at treeline and it didn‘t exhibit any signs of instability.
