Yesterday I climbed Dragontail Peak with my friends Josh and Amy. We hiked up to Colchuck Lake Friday in the dark and camped. Woke up to a light falling snow but it soon became partly cloudy with some fantastic views that got better and better as we headed up Aasgard Pass. Upper Enchantment Basin got about 10 inches of snow Friday night and Colchuck Lake got about 2 inches. No snow fell on Sunday except for around a half inch just after dard when we hiked out.
Summit of Dragontail was perfect. Not much rime yet. Some color remaining especially below Colchuck Lake. Aasgard Pass had some icy sections that required more attention otherwise just a little snow covered the rocks. Trail was easy to see the whole way up.
Gaitors were a huge plus and microspikes might help but I didn't use them. About a foot of fresh snow covered the hard icy remnant snow that is the permanent snowfield on the way up Dragontail above the pass.
