Corona Pass road closed at approximately 5 mi due to snow runoff and road damage, but saw two moose and beautiful views on the drive up.

Still pretty snowy up there- once above the straight portion passed the crater-forest split, its snow hiking for the rest of the way

Climbed James Peak yesterday and was absolutely beautiful--gaiters and trekking poles are a must to navigate the amount of snow. Didn't feel like I needed to use crampons or ice axe at all. It's melting fast so the afternoon was super slushy.

Went in early May. Pretty challenging because of the deep snow which was pretty consistent the whole trail. Would love to go back when it's warm.

Attempted this yesterday with no luck. 1 mile in and you're already walking on 3 feet deep piles of snow. Then it dried out for a while until about 2 miles in, the trail was all snow packed and hard to distinguish. Not worth getting lost.

Beautiful hike in early June. Gets a bit slow-going on the second half without snow shoes or crampons but it's still doable with hiking boots.

Would've been a gorgeous day for a hike, but due to the late spring storms, snowshoes or backcountry gear is very much needed for this trek.

Great snowshoe expedition! Definitely need them unless you're keen on postholing up the last mile. Cover up to protect from sun/wind exposure on most of the trail. If you miss the cairns (which are hard to see), hugging the false summit to the right and then ascending the ridge is a good route too.

Nice hike, quiet. Went during the summer. Worth the climb for the lakes, looked like a great place to set up camp, quite a few people fishing.

Nice snowshoe hike. Followed skier trail. Quite a bit of incline towards the end with deep snow.

Snowshoeing to Mt Flora was no problem with snow on the final approach being sparse, so we took off our snowshoes for the final up. Taking your time over crusting snow and slope is important in the winter months. Stay high and safe.

I've hiked this trail a few times. Its an awesome area, there are a few other trail junctions along the way that are worth checking out as well. In winter Rogers Pass trail is usually pretty easy to follow until you get up by Rogers Peak Lake and then anything goes, most tracks aren't going to be on the trail, and some of them just go off in random directions. Definitely recommend bringing GPS and topo map.
