Good rule of thumb: if you can look at it from below and see snow/ice, the route has plenty of both.

Looking at it right now and it looks snowy/icy.
-Just as soon as you idiot proof something, some a**hole is just going to come along and make a better idiot.

-To Cessna: "November one, zero, four Lima Papa, wind 080 at 90 peak gusts 120, runway 35 cleared for takeoff"

To fellow controller: "Watch this sh!t"

-Whether climbing or flying, the single greatest thing to remember is that every ascent is optional, and if you feel like making another, your subsequent descent is mandatory.

Even easier, if you can see snow/ice in the crevases from Denver/Boulder, then there is probably lots of there. I see such right now.
