Does anyone have any information on the approach into Horn Fork Basin? Snow conditions, etc?

I just got back today from the Kroenke (sp?) lake area, which is in the same general area. The hike up to the lake was brutal, post holing like crazy even with snow shoes. We went up to Yale and looked down into the Horn Fork Basin and it had the same amount of snow, if not more.

If you go, just be ready for a leg workout.

On the positive side, we had the entire lake basin to ourselves. Not a soul was around :)
