Excellent snowshoe trip in the middle of winter. Very cold and windy at the top. I encountered some a snowmobiler and a couple of skiers before entering the wilderness but otherwise had complete solitude.

Started out on jeep track ~10:45 am. Postholing for most of the way after leaving the jeep track and going into the wilderness area. Got caught in snow shower and high wind at summit ~3pm. Totally burnt out by the time we summited, didn't get back to jeep track till sundown at ~5:45pm. back to parking lot at ~7pm.

Snowshoe would have been great especially for the ~400 ft drop/gain after jeep track and gully leading up Mt Rose due to thick, rather powdery snow . If I were a smarter person. I would have 1) start earlier than 10:45 am, its a good 10 miles RT ! 2) rent snowshoes 3) use gaiters.

Leisurely hike to summit with my girlfriend. Loads and loads of wildflowers easily compensated for the somewhat hazy summit views. Hike report and lots of pics were here

2nd time to the summit, 1st time via the Tourist Trail. The view from the summit is maybe the best in the Tahoe Basin. Took 2:20 round trip on the latest ascent.

An uneventful trip up the tourist trail, only a dusting of snow in the shady spots, no wind to speak of. Not too many tourists

A clear day. Moderate to gusty winds at the summit. 15 degrees at he summit not counting the wind chill. The storm the night before dumped a good foot or more of snow at 8000 and above, that made it fairly difficult to put the route in.
