We tried to schedule our Mt. Pinos (& Sawmill and Grouse) summits to take place before the snow we encountered last year; unfortunately, it snowed just a few days before our scheduled date. Nonetheless, we went ahead and plowed through the sometimes two foot deep snow to complete the 3-2-1 challenge. However, it was not as deep as last year. As always, a fun snow hike!!!
Did you need chains for the drive up? Did you use snowshoes or micro spikes on the hike?
