I'm planning on hiking San Gorgonio next Monday. What gear do you think I'll need?

Thanks

You'll need your axe and crampons. You might also need the snowshoes.

Skied up Fri-Sat. As of now snowshoes or skis are indispensable, but after this warm week you might be able to get by without, especially since there's a boot track already (South Fork, north side). Summit plateau has been stripped of snow by very high winds. You might find several pairs of sunglasses which were literally blown off our faces from under balaclavas =/
