Date of Hike: 1-12-09

Trail Conditions: Trail to west peak well broken out. “Sidewalk to the summit (http://inlinethumb45.webshots.com/27180/2199420920103091301S600x600Q85.jpg)”. The track between west and east summits is drifted in. The cairns stand prominently above the snow so navigation is not a problem. The ledges on the east summit cone are mostly bare (http://inlinethumb61.webshots.com/3068/2720373890103091301S600x600Q85.jpg); lots of snow but no ice. No crampons needed.

Special Equipment Required: Snowshoes for the entire route.

Comments: The trailhead parking area is plowed out and has capacity for a dozen or more vehicles (http://inlinethumb62.webshots.com/43709/2218072000103091301S600x600Q85.jpg).
