Jeep road is icy and wasn't drivable with our 4WD, so be ready to hike the 3mi approach.

Snow was fairly consistently around a foot deep on the trail. Snowshoes could help but aren't required. Trail can be icy.

Sections of the trail, mostly past the switchbacks on the west face, have deep snowdrifts that are canted towards the downhill side. This section was icy when we did it, so ice axe was required here and made for potentially fatal exposure.
