Did the Sawtooth yesterday. Lots of snow on the east side of the ridge. Not enough snow to ski anywhere but plenty of waist deep postholing on the traverse. It was fun, but a very long day and not easy going at all. Third time to do the Sawtooth, first time in winter. Past scrambles on the Sawtooth, I found easy. Yesterday was very challending. Ice, postholey snow, and increased exposure due to current conditions, made it quite the day.

Bierstadt ?

If just doing Bierstadt, are snowshoes needed?

If you are only doing Bierstadt, you do not need snow shoes. You may post hole a little bit, but it will not be bad unless you get off the boot track somehow.

This trip I plan on staying well on the defined trail.
