    We did a picnic hike. Hiked 2 hours to the summit, then had a 1.5 hour picnic with great wine and delicious sandwiches. Then 1 hour back down. A great way to spend a day with someone you love.

    We hiked this in one day on June 25, 2017. We used micro-spikes and walking poles. Some people were using crampons (less than half) and many people had axes but were rarely using them. Bring a mosquito net.

    The snow starts about 1 mile before Trail Camp. We were on snow from there until Trail Crest. The switchbacks are covered in snow so everyone is hiking up the chute. This is like being on a slippery stairmaster for 2.5 hours - very exhausting. Waling poles with the snow disks was very helpful. As always, the view from the summit was amazing. Most of the lakes were almost completely frozen over.

    The water was amazing. Each river was extremely high. This made for beautiful views but the crossings were challenging. The water level was higher then most of the crossing rocks and logs. Some people were removing their boots and crossing barefoot (the water was super cold). Others had gators on. I got frustrated and just started marching through the water. I did the entire hike with wet feet. Definitely not ideal, would have preferred gators but did not want to spend 10 minutes taking my boots off and putting them back on every mile or two.

    Sliding down the chute was awesome! You can either go down the chute which is long and fast, or many people were sliding down the snow. It is easier to control your speed on the snow so I strongly recommend it if you have never done this. The long chute can build up some major speeds. It took me 2 hours to hike up the chute and about 5 minutes to slide down.

    The mosquitoes were outrageous. I have over 100 bites. Repellent is only barely making a difference. I strongly encourage everyone to bring a net to keep them off your face and neck.
