Silverheels/Hoosier/Reds in great condition. 19 miles (seems high) and 6k total. The gist is a deep approach, up to about 11,800, that will require snowshoes or skis - stops there if you take the climbers right side of the ridge/slope up to Hoosier/silverheels turnoff but continues to 12,300 if u bear left. Mostly negligible snow afterwards, with sections of deep stuff that doesn't need snowshoes. Spikes will be helpful for ascent of silverheels which is a steep loose climbers trail covered in 2-4 inches of sugar snow, and one steep bootpackish section going up red mtn. An axe would be nice on that section of red as well, it is a solid 30 degrees or so. Was nice to have one but poles would also totally suffice. Stay far left on it and there is no avy hazard, but definitely stay away from the rollover on the right side - could definitely cause a slide, maybe below you but maybe not. Get after it, the gettin's good!
