Ascent Trip Report

We parked on Elwell Lodge Road at the point when it became impassable in our low-clearance vehicle due to snow, which was less than a kilometer away from the usual trailhead. We took the usual route around the east and north sides of Long Lake. Plenty of snowpack along the whole route. The snow was generally in good condition for climbing and descending in trail runners.
