Sharing a pic of Mt. Princeton I took today. Didn‘t make it to the radio towers due to snow (hiking), but the road isn‘t quite passable yet for mere mortals. If you have a high clearance 4x4 , chains, and large huevos, you could probably brute your way to the radio towers.

Pic of peak is from HWY 24 just east of Johnsonville.

Thanks for the pic, not as much snow as I thought there would be

I've never done Princeton, but I'm going to give it a shot this weekend. Get some snowshoe/microspike experience at least

I have a high clearance vehicle(Xterra) but only average sized huevos. Do you think I would be able to get to the 4WD lots? I think BV is supposed to get some snow this week too.

Also, I'm having a tough time finding any info on the cabin that's up there. Where is it in relation to the bottom lot and the summit?

Not my place to say you can/should. But consider this, any pucker point you drive through going up and forward, you may have to drive in reverse going down. The road is narrow and there are few places to do a many point turn to turn around.

You can probably get more info from a new thread here:

Hey Emohr, did you hike Princeton last weekend? I was looking to go up with a buddy this weekend. I was just hoping to get an update on conditions if you did go up their last weekend. I know it snowed quite a bit last weekend.
