Snow and ice covered the fire road from the bottom all the way to the summit. Had a wonderful experience hiking this road because the snow and conditions. The roads leading to the mountain and campground (79 Highway) had snow and ice patches on the road which burned off by the time we left  ( arrive 7am departed 10:30am). The fire road leading to the summit was entirely covered by snow and had ice patches. What a blast!!  My friend and I crushed this hike. It was very fun.  Took us about an 1 hr and 50 minutes to summit and then 40 minutes to jog back down. Yes jogging was a little safer than walking in places because it allowed you to get a strong foothold in the snow. Look forward to running this one in the summer.
