This was my third time at Mailbox. My first attempt was cut short after the talus field due to heat exhaustion. I reclaimed the summit later in 2020 and added in a snow experience today. We hiked the old trail up and the new trail down.
There’s snow at the top, but it’s manageable with micro spikes and poles. I was surprised that it wasn’t more crowded! Masks were intermittent.
This is a challenging hike, not to be underestimated. Plan plenty of time and enjoy!
