Trip: Mt Ellinor - winter route Date: 4/28/2007 Trip Report: Seattle Mountaineers scramble, party of five. Parked above the lower TH around 08:45, took the shortcut trail from the bend in the road up to the upper TH. Encountered maybe 100 yds of icy packed snow on the upper part of the trail, nothing too serious just took a little extra care, otherwise no terrain problems at all. Snow in the chute was in good condition, no avalanche danger, no ice, good step-kicking snow. Mostly cloudy but no precipitation; the sun broke out briefly while on the summit, around 12:30. The 1000' glissade made for a quick return trip. Approach Notes: Road clear to bend @ 3000', above lower TH.
