Hiked up 86.7% up Frosty Mt on Nov 17th. This was a great Chriatmas'y hike. We had to turn back around when the snow reached our waist. We had no crampons or snow shoes, only carbide tipped trekking poles. Crampons would have helped as there were plenty of ice pockets on the first 2km of the trail. After 2km trail gets easier, more packing snow giving more traction. Trail up us a good mix of varying levels of switchbacks. We started the trail at 10am and turned back around 1pm, getting back to the parking lot just as the sun was going down. This is important as lower part of the trail is very icey if you dont have a headlamp and gear. Track your time appropriately, you dont want to get stuck up there when the sun goes down.

    Completed 18th October 2018.

    Frozen snow on sections of the trail from ~1800m onwards.

    Ascent of the section from above the meadow to Windy Joe lookout (~200m) involved scrambling over rocks covered in frozen snow - crampons advisable.

    Ridge line to the actual peak was much more straightforward though also involved frozen snow on rock in places.

      Did this hike September 23rd, 2018. End of September or early October is a really good time to go as the Larches start to change colors. Layer up as the temperature can change drastically as you gain elevation. It was snowing at the peak. This was one of the best hikes I have done so far.
