Let me know how it was. I don't wheel in the snow because I don't want to fix stuff in the snow but you guys have a fun, safe trip!

I was there last Sunday (1/27) and the first big hill at the top entrance was on the cold side of the mountain and under 5 inches of snow/packed ice on the trail. Was very difficult for anyone not locked/locked. The dirt road leading to the trail was also treacherous and had evidence of people falling off the road and hitting the trees to the side. Keep it in 4Lo and go slow. Don't touch the brakes.

We were there Saturday and agree to conditions. 4lo and first gear, no brakes, worked well on stock Duelers. Automatics and mud tires seemed to have the worst of it.

Also, there was a group in front of us with a bunch of trucks. Two were Toyota Prerunners (ie 2WD). They had a terrible time.
