you won't need snowshoes, an axe or spikes.

That’s great - much appreciated. I can run it if it’s dry. At least not hauling snowshoes is nice. Thanks!

Summitted Wheeler from Williams Lake two weekends ago. Micro spikes were needed, but nothing more. No wind, nice day. Humphreys was extremely windy- some snow but no traction devices were necessary.
