Didn't make it to the top; the snow got too deep about 1.7 miles in. Ended up walking part of the ski slope, then reconnected to the trail above the chair lift, but the deep snow started shortly thereafter. The views at that point were incredible, however, and made the hike worthwhile. The trail, when it does clear, has a lot of downed timber, so be prepared to scramble!

Even though there wasn't snow anywhere else, this trail was 90% snow. It wasn't very steep, views were amazing, and not very hard to find. Other than the snow, the one downside was that we lost the trail and ended up finding a ski resort instead.
