Wow this was a hard hike! Ali, Brandon, the dogs and I started at 6:35 am at Pioneer Gulch TH and got to the summit at noon. No snow for first 1.5 miles then we had our snowshoes on the rest of the way up. Incredible views of the sisters, Odell butte, Mt. Bailey. Only saw 3 other people on the trail. Did some glissading on the way down and ended up a bit off the trail, once the afternoon hit it heated up and the snow was very slushy with a lot of hollow pockets underneath. It was amazing but not easy and dangerous in some spots with the melting snow!
