Mt Evans Road Conditions: On Monday 1/18 I pedaled up the road from Echo Lake (gate closure) to Summit Lake. The first 2 miles are hard packed snow. It has been well-travelled and skied on. Beyond Mile Marker 3 which is about treeline, there are only inboard sections with snow and lots of outboard road space available to ride or walk on. Around Summit Lake (Mile Marker 9) the road is covered over in hard drifts for maybe a quarter mile. I could see clear road to about Mile Marker 10, but did not go any further than the lake.
1/21 added 5 pictures and captions
