Calf to knee deep sugar snow after departing the road @~9974. Deep, soft snow was continuous until we hit the wind-scoured ridge above tree line @ ~1140 where we switched to microspikes. There should be a nice trench through the trees now.

Recommend parking at the 198/Rainbow trail junction as the road conditions deteriorate pretty quickly from that point. There is a signed trail and space for maybe 2 vehicles to park.
