Did the DECALIBRON with South Bross add today. Trail conditions are great. No need for snow shoes. Traction devices are pretty much a necessity. I used poles and they helped quite a bit. The trail is hard packed all the way to Democrat. The whole loop is actually easier than traveling in the summer! The snow flattens out the trail and makes it quicker. It was a beautiful day with little or no wind. You could not ask for an easier winter summit. High clearance 2wd cars can make it to within .2 miles of the trail head (4wd will not get you any closer). People who drive Prius' have to park 1.2 miles from the trail head.
