Enjoyed a few scramble this last month, Change Peak with a couple folks from NWHikers (Matt, Snowdog and Carla whose NWHikers' username is escaping me at the moment) and Avalanche Mountain with another fellow hike blogger, John Porter (One Hike A Week).  Been having some fun making videos from my trips, adds a little fun to recounting the journey.  Looking forward to more outdoor adventures in 2019.  Happy New Year!

You don't find yourself standing at the top of a mountain without having started out in the valley.

Which route did you take to Snow Lake? The map shows the summer trail.

If you click on my GAIA, it should show our route, the winter route.  Randy has helped to point out it wasn't public yet.  smile.gif

It's too bad your view up Burntboot and the Upper Middle Fork was so shaded by the low winter sun. I love that view. This peak has some of the best views around with Chair on one side, Snoqualmie on another, and the crest peaks to the east.

I'd say the "winter route" to Snow Lake is a misnomer as there really isn't a reliably safe route when conditions are less than good. I'm not saying you didn't judge them correctly, but unlike Granite where there is a winter route that's dramatically safer under most conditions (wind blown ridge) that's not true here.

Thank you everyone for your helpful comments on the winter route.  I misspoke.  Our plan had been to take a more winter route my friend has done before so that stuck in my head.  Where we turned up the trail, also, continued straight making it seem this was the case.  However, despite all the straight up we did cutting the "trail", we ended up close to the same pass above the lake.
