Could still drive to Boreas Pass, but the road was packed snow from the winter closure up.

Sugary, slippery, snow. From a couple of inches to thigh deep postholing. The route to the ridge looked windswept, but the snow was definitely a big factor. Did not use snowshoes, hiking poles were a must (but I'd forgotten mine), microspikes would not help in the sugary snow. And the winds...check the forecast...absolutely miserable. Tough way to get this fairly short peak.
