Carried snowshoes but never used them. The winds were surprisingly calm as well. A few in our party chose to use micro spikes. I had on full winter gear and the zero degree ambient temps were nice. We started at sunrise and a good freeze made snow conditions pleasant. Made the summit before noon and back around one p.m. to hear the masses trying out snowshoes for the first time. "Should I get a go pro?....I hike a lot man!"

Do you think there is enough snow around to skin up?

On Sunday, There were three parties (of two or more people) who skied James peak and a half a dozen more who skied the glacier only. We followed one skin track to the summit so conditions should be the same
