There is snow on the trail pretty early on, but it thickens up quick. Micro spikes would be useful - some of the snow has thawed and refrozen so it’s a bit slick if there isn’t fresh snowfall on top. I meant to bring mine but forgot! Still totally doable without them, you’ll just need to be careful where you step and not be too cool to do a little butt scooting. Kind of an ass-kicker in the winter! My glutes were burning! But very worth it for the view of the snow covered lake and surrounding scenery. Watch out for the whiskey jacks! They will want to share your lunch. I’d love to do this hike again - worth the adventure. Always a reminder: Bring appropriate equipment, check the avalanche danger before heading out, and make smart choices on the trail. Winter hiking is magical, but don’t underestimate the danger.★ ★ ★ ★
