We couldn’t go but about a half mile up from the trailhead because there was snow we didn’t expect. It’s May 25, and we were just day tripping, didn’t expect quite that amount of snow. So be prepared with the right shoes! Lots of skiers and snowboarders too so be cognizant of your surroundings.

Late June and the mountain was still great for skiing. We hiked right up the Mountaineer Trail and then over to Silcox Hut and down the Silcox Hut Trail. Watched the US ski team train doing aerials and jumps. Pretty cool. Have seen pictures of this rocky landscape when the snow is gone and think it is nicer with the snow. Think would be more fun skiing it.

Not easy...it's a short climb, but a great workout if you're outta shape!
