|Peak:||Quandary Peak (14er)|
|Date of Info:||03/10/2011|
Snow all the way from the parking area to the top. The trail was well packed down. The first hill above treeline had boot deep snow before putting on the snowshoes. Above that the trail was pretty firm so shoes may not have been required but helped since the surface was icy. Shoes helpful on the decent. It was a warm day so at noon back near treeline I was punching through even with the shoes on (22" MSR Evo).
