Drove up to the gate and biked the 7 miles or so down the road to the summer TH. Road was basically clear of snow until the Maroon Bell West Portal; stashed my bike and walked the last bit. Snowshoes would have been helpful at the summer TH as there was a lot of post holing. Choosing your route carefully you can make your way down to the lake and up the ridge towards Crater Lake with a minimum amount of post holing. Turned around at the ridge as I was pretty beat.
