Hiked Tabeguache Peak on 11/20/2010. The overall hike was surprisingly free from snow, though snow was encountered through treeline and on the summit ridge. We didn't use snow shoes or traction devices (YakTrax and the like) during our ascent. That being said, there is an extreme weather alert for the southern Sawatch range from 11pm Saturday 11/20 to 8pm Monday 11/22, so conditions could change rapidly during that time. We were off the mountain at 8pm, and were experiencing extremely high winds above treeline, which I'm assuming was this front moving into the area.
Route Information: We took an alternate approach to the Jennings Creek route. In essence following Jennings Creek up the basin similar to the route in "Dawson's guide to Colorado Fourteeners". This route does not use the closed restoration area.
