Trail to the garden is in excelent condition. Very hard pack with nice powder on the sides. The trail to about 3500' was well broken by about 7 folks a head of me. Once i caught them I broke to the summit.
The views were awesome today, pretty windy on the backside of the summit.

No special equipment needed, just the usual winter gear. Snowshoes or skis are a must with the warm weather coming up this week.
