Did the Redcloud/Sunshine combo today, great conditions on both mtns. Crampons are not needed, but I did have to use my snowshoes once after falling through the snow up to my chest while crossing one of the high fields between the two mtns. I had a heck of a time getting out and almost lost my boot. While descending I saw that I could have avoided the field almost entirely by climbing higher. Oh well. Bottom line - snowshoes aren't necessary and there are some short but fun glissades on the way down.
