Ascent Trip Report

Hiked via the Pioneer Pass Trail. Patchy snow varying between a dusting and 1 ft deep along the trail. Snow shoes would have been nice for perhaps 40% of the ascent but being able to boot glissade down was fun.

Lots of fresh deer and javelina tracks. No people tracks in snow to summit. Trail still very easy to spot.
