We were only driving a van and got stopped 3 miles from Kite Lake. A 4wd vehicle could push on for another 2 miles. Bare booted to peaks; gaitors recommended and microspikes were beneficial but not necessary. Snowshoes would be of negligible utility and we chose to ditch them on the approach to the lake. Snow is very light above the saddle between Democrat and Cameron and we walked on bare dirt and rocks for about half of the time. There is no snow after Cameron; the south facing slopes of Bross are bare. Very sad
