Trail is mostly packed from the ranch HQ to Four Way, from there on snowshoes would come in handy until you get to the big cairn on the ridge. After that point, we stashed our snowshoes and booted it up to the summit. Postholing still happens but the outcropping rock ribs would make snowshoes/microspikes unfeasible. Trapdoor snow had to be carefully negotiated with on the way up and down the mountain. Windy on the way down, but manageable with proper gear.
