285 was clear and well paved up to Guanella camp (2 mi and ~800' elevation from trailhead). Road was well packed from snowmobiles and others. Once on trail, snowshoes are required, and even with them you might posthole. About ~200' above treeline, microspikes or crampons would be extremely helpful but not necessarily required.
