Just got back from here. The trail is followable to treeline and mostly packed. We broke the trail for another mile further. I would recommend snow shoes. Just below tree line we got in waste deep powder. While struggling to get out the snow "popped" twice and started sliding...We turned around and headed home along with another group we encouraged to turn around. One guy went ahead of us and said the ridge has very little snow on it but getting to the ridge is mostly waste deep powder. The road is clear to where the plows are piling snow.Be careful of avalanches out there!
