Went and climbed Clinton, McNamee and Traver today. Any car can get to the Montgomery Reservoir TH and we started at 7am. The Wheeler lake Jeep road is basically snow free for the first half mile. Otherwise solid snow covering the road to the lake. Wheeler Lake was still completely frozen.

We followed fantastic bucket steps all the way up the slopes of Clinton. Who ever went up Clinton yesterday....THANKS!!! Fantastic snow conditions that were great for glissading but we noticed LOTS of snowball rollers as we glissaded. Probably not the best idea but we stayed on slopes below 40 degrees.

Traverse over to McNamee and Traver was easy...not much wind either.
Got back to the car around 2:30.
Around 3:30 the clouds all banded together and the drive back was cloudy.

Thanks for having me along, it was a blast! I'll second that ”thank you” to whoever went up Clinton recently. Perfect staircase!
