|Peak:||Mt. Bierstadt (14er)|
|Date of Information:||06/12/2011|
Finally being able to access Bierstadt from I-70 is a welcome development.
Snowshoes are not needed on this peak, though one may encounter a bit of post-holing on the way down after the snow softens. The peak is very dry on the upper flanks, and though I saw some people carrying ice axes (as well as snowshoes), neither are needed. Great early summer conditions will be found.
