From winter trailhead, some shortcuts to switchbacks to cut mileage off winter road. Once off road, trail snow-packed to ~12.5k ft but you'll posthole if you step off trail. Above 12k ft, snow is wind-packed. Spikes only, no need for snowshoes. Only a few spots without snow.

Our day had medium winds and clouds until 11am, sunny thereafter.

Hi. Thank you for the chill report! Did you happen to record the mileage and elevation gain from the winter trail head with a short cuts? We did it today and we did not record. Thank you!
