|Peak:||Mt. Democrat (14er)|
|Date of Information:||03/06/2013|
Did the loop from Kite Lake/Paris Mill winter closure. There are some big drifts on the road, but also dry patches. The road becomes fully covered about a mile from summer TH. Snowshoes were not needed for Bross, Cameron and Lincoln, but highly recommended for Democrat almost to the saddle with Cameron. Democrat sports great coverage on Emma Lake chutes and SE slope sides. Although be careful - Arkansas has a big slide on the same aspect. Great weather day with very little wind.
