So I went up near there to check it out. Eastern facing slopes had virtually no snow, western facing slope were covered and icy as could. Ass end slid around a lot, had to go 2 mph on easy easy track to not feel like I was gonna fly off the cliff.

I hope you did not go at it alone. I went up 2nd mountain trail years ago looking for some friends. I got as far as just past the second set of power lines. I got hung up in my 85 runner on 35's and lockers. I tried winching out, battery died, I could not get it to restart. Hiked out to 33 and east to the little store only to use the phone and call a cab back to Mass of nothing for the night. Found some local guys from the local 4 wheel drive club to help me go get it the next day. Installed a new battery and all was good. Now another truck broke on the way out which lead us back into town to get parts, then back up the trail to repair broken truck and drive out. Lets just say I will not go wheeling alone again! The trail and roads were covered in snow too. I got stuck in an area that I could not turn around in.

I sure did. I'm local and I make sure a couple in town have my location and tell em when I expect to be back, and I know where I can walk to service. I bring everything I need to stay a night and stay warm even I'm not planning to. Makes it exciting.

Text me next time you go.

I went up the back of reddish knob today. It was mostly clear but definitely a few icy spots.
