Snow started about 1/4 mile after the stream crossing and didn't stop. I wore snowshoes and postholed from when the snow started until treeline (up to my thighs). The trail was covered in several feet of snow, so there was some route finding involved (now the route is well marked by my postholing).
There was an avalanche in the gully, and just before the last switchback I decided to take the consolidated gully instead of the postholing switchbacks (postholing at 5am was getting old). This was a great idea, but you have to wait until the last switchback because the gully doesn't "go" all the way down to the stream (see pic). Easy trek from mine to summit. Wore snowshoes but they probably weren't needed after the mine.
