The snow is not my worry. Comming home down the mountain with a 33' gooseneck with two rigs on it in possible snow was my concern.

Spent the weekend up there and went in Friday night. Made it a little ways past milemarker 4.5. Snow was getting deeper and trail was getting tougher to make good progress. In good judgement, we decided to turn around and head back to Eagle lakes and camp there. The off camber spot was very sketch. We had to pull cable to keep from falling off it.

A few pics.

Friday night.


Saturday morning.


Driveline Hill shenanigans from Saturday night.


This morning.
