Ascent Trip Report

Not a ton of snow on the mountain, but fresh snow from TH to summit. A couple inches at trailhead, and a foot of fresh snow on several feet of existing snow near,the summit. Snow shoes from 6500 feet on. No wind all day other than the last few hundred feet where it was gusty and cold. In stable conditions this is a nice snowshoe route with lots of elevation gain.
