From the Grant, CO, side, CR 381 is clear of snow all the way to Guanella Pass, but the road is still gated-locked just below Duck Lake, 1.85 miles below the Pass. The road from Grant to the Pass is 90% paved. Trail to Mt. Bierstadt base is mostly clear of snow; lower boggy portions frozen in AM, very muddy with warming daytime temps. The main slope of Bierstadt has 3-6 inches of snow in places, and quite easy walking. Snowshoes definitely not needed. Saw total of about 10 folks walking up on 4/29/12.
