Made it about half way the road to the trail head before getting stuck then spending the next 1.5hours trying to back down and getting stuck, the road right now is passible but just barley. Headed up the switch back with only a slight track going up it didnt look like anyone had been up there in while. I had my eye on skiing the gully along the ridge but the steep sections of the gully were horribly wind slabbed and made for scary/tricky skiing, plus the entire lower part of the gully had tons of rocks in it from the slopes above. I put a bunch of really good dings in my skies and wouldent advise trying to ski it or any of the trail back down until we get a good dumping of snow
