The 2WD road to St Elmo was icy but I saw several 2WD vehicles navigating fine. The 4WD road to Tincup Pass was icy and I wouldn't attempt it in a stock 4WD. I wore microspikes until the upper basin, and then snowshoes once I left the road. I did not take the ridge, as it was very windy today and there was a cornice at the access point. Instead I summited by heading up the east face. There were a lot of moose tracks along the road and in the basin. I came across two male moose in the willows on my way down. It was snowing on my descent.
