Went for Tigger and Princeton today. Only got in Tigger but went to the saddle and followed the standart Princeton route back out. The standard route does have snow on the trail and spikes were useful. Spikes were also useful on the road as the angle of the snow would have been tough to use snowshoes on. If the peak doesn't get any more snow, personally I would leave the shoes at home and follow the standard route all the way up the peak.

Be safe out there!

No snowshoes, no route finding, no wind, no headlamp, nothing but a base layer all the way to the summit...was that really the 10th of March?
Had a great day with you guys. It was awesome to meet you all! Matt, congrats on finally getting this one.
