2013-05-26 The parking lot off of Hwy 145 is total snow free and the trail to the Cross Mnt/Lizard Head Peak saddle is clear enough of snow that snow shoes are not needed. You will want snow shoes in Bilk Basin if going for Gladstone or Wilson Peak. globreal         
2012-02-17 There is now a ski track from the Cross Mountain TH to around 11,000 in Slate Creek. But it ends right above a pretty significant slide. Beware if you are heading back to this area soon. Dad Mike
