We’ve completed this hike twice now, and both times enjoyed it. This year was a little snowy, so hiking was slower, but still very beautiful views. If you’re hiking the ridge to the Grand Manitou Lodge/Gondola to get down, it’s fully open and you’re on the ski slopes - very miserable if the snow machines are on.
