Intended to attempt both Twin Peak and Ellis, but Barker Pass Road was closed all the way down at the Sno Park, so decided to hike up the road to the pass, then through lots of snow over to Ellis Peak. The thought of backtracking to the pass and taking the road 7 miles out was enough to get us to go cross country on descent, although we still logged over 17 miles on the day. Trip report is HERE
