most of the hike was clear of snow. The top requires snow shoes. Someone with micro spikes had to turn back because it was too deep. Snowed the whole time, so no view but still pretty.

Great hike--good workout and amazing views. Did this hike on 3/19/17. As of that time it was still pretty snowy near the top which made for some pretty slow going, and wet feet coming back down. Totally worth it though.

Kristan Makl: I think someone may have found the micro spikes you lost. There was a single blue set of micro spikes (the kind with the metal spirals on the bottom) that someone had placed on top of a post at the trailhead. It was there as of Sunday 3/19/17.

Great hike. Super steep towards the summit especially in snow but for sure a leg burner

Great hike and stunning view! The last half mile has about three feet of snow on it. If you plan to go past the saddle micro spikes are a must. lost one of mine on the way down somewhere between the peak and the saddle if anyone happens to find it.

Amazing Hike. Went from Church Fork to the summit, then down the West face. South side was nice and snowy, micro-spikes recommended, snow shoes would have been an overkill. West face was slippy, windy and eventually muddy.

part on an event where we got real familiar with the trail on multiple laps in the snow. just short enough to enjoy, long enough to be a workout

Great hike this time of year. Mellow up until the last half mile up to the saddle and peak. Doable with no cleats/spikes but the top part (and coming down) is much easier with some cleats/spikes and trekking poles. Avalanche danger: Green.

Great winter hike, definitely glad I wore spikes. The last ascent is a beast but we'll worth the views. I went on a non-dog day and still saw dogs, which is cool but please pick up your shit.
