I started from the road parking since the gate was closed and ran the "new trail" route as an out-and-back. The trail was covered in snow all the way to the top, so micro-spikes were a must. Overall the trail was in great condition. Snow was packed, barely any trees over the path and not too many people out. As usual it was windy up top so I only stayed for a few minutes to eat before starting the decent. Decent was very technical and difficult at times since snow off-trail was knee deep.
