Skinned up the road, you won't need any flotation til after mitchell lake TH, but they are required beyond that.
No one has been up this way since the past couple big storms, after the TH there was nothing. I trenched out a path til close to treeline, going through the trees was fine. I hit a couple areas right before treeline where there were these huge drifts covering the "trail" that were bulletproof snow my skins/edges couldnt grab well. I forgot my ski crampons in the car, and didnt feel very comfortable going forward much more on my skis. Trench should be mostly there hopefully for a couple more days, atleast what the wind doesnt cover up.
