Able to drive to the summit of Marshall Pass from the east. There were a few drifts about 1.5 miles from the summit that already had tracks through them. No floatation needed for the mountain. Some post holing below tree line, but nothing major. Above treeline was largely blown off but there was fresh snow from the recent storm. Much of this melted during the day. Between the rocks was often filled in with snow. There was hoar frost higher on the mountain. There are some cornices and snow deposit areas depending on aspect. We took MicroSpikes but didnít use them. Recommend having a pole for traction on snowy areas. It was a windy day!
