Approach to Lake Como does not require snowshoes (2-4 inches of snow on the road). Snowshoes needed after Lake Como. There is a faint snowshoe track through the trees to the gully that leads up to Little Bear. The Blue Lakes basin is wind scoured, and with clever route finding, only occasional trail breaking and postholing was necessary. Ellingwood Point seems to hold more snow than Blanca.
