A false peak on the way up, the snow line seemed around 1200 feet.
lots of cloud cover throughout the day
looking off the mountain, I'm about to push up through the storm cell you see on the right...

I bypassed the road closed sign by using a firetrail above the ranger station.
It was worth it.
20 minutes later.
Riding in snow is quite fun, and I'm glad I had the chance to do it regularly once upon a time. Here, it's nice to be able to descend out of the bitter cold at the end of the ride, though the descent takes much longer when one has to dodge ice.
