We took the rocky slope directly up the shoulder (pictured) instead of the road to avoid deeper patches of snow.

Bluebird day, was a great snow hike. Only needed snowshoes for patches of windblown snow around 12,300'-13,000'. I personally didn't make it to the west end of the ridge (a.k.a. the proper summit), but the other 2 in my group continued on and said it was a real slog getting through that final mile of ridge in such deep snow (also pictured, to the left of the mountain goats).
