This was going to be a ski trip in late winter, then early spring, finally happened in mid spring.  We were prepared to hike the first 4 miles then ski the rest.  Instead the road was plowed 7 miles requiring us to hike most of the road, a full-on backpacking trip.  Anyway, we made it okay to Obstruction Point where there is still 1~4' snow.  However, many of south facing slopes like most of Elk Mtns were bare.

No snow!

Keep walking:
