2016-10-23  Route: Ptarmigan and Weston from Weston Pass

Info: No snow at all heading up to Weston Peak. Just a couple small patches on the way up to Ptarmigan Peak which could have been avoided, but there was no reason to avoid them considering how short they were. All-in-all pretty dry up there considering the time of year.

Info: The Weston Pass road is snowy coming from Leadville. Small cars will need to park at the winter closure. Larger vehicles can make it further, but watch out as there were many places where it looked like vehicles had to be dug out when they slid slightly off the road. No vehicles got past the point where the road turns from east to south (heading toward the pass). Past this point, either skis or snowshoes are useful (the snow if pretty hard, but postholing still happened in just boots). The snow is sparse to nonexistent on the peaks up there right now, and the hike to Ptarmigan Peak can be done in just boots from Weston Pass. There is some snow so make sure you're wearing something waterproof, but most of it is hard and crusty.

Info: Still clear of snow. My Elantra had no problem reaching Weston Pass from the east (285).
