WENT UP TO SIBLING CREEK ROAD AND IT WAS DRIVABLE FOR ABOUT 3 MILES IN. WE HAD TO HIKED OR SKI ABOUT A MILE IN TO REACH THE HIDDEN LAKE TRAILHEAD. I WOULD SAY NEXT MONTH THE ROAD SHOULD MELT OUT. THERE IS PLENTY OF SNOW ON THE TRAIL AND THE BASIN. BUT WE HAD TO TAKE OUR SKIS OFF FEW TIMES AND WALK. AVALANCHE DANGER SEEMED LOW WITH THE SNOW BEING HARD AND ICY. THE ROUTE TO THE LOOKOUT WAS STRAIGHTFORWARD AND NICE ENOUGH TO RELAX FOR OVER AN HOUR. THE WEATHER WAS SNOWY AND WHITEOUT BUT THE SUN DID PEEK OUT FEW TIMES. IT STILL FELT LIKE WINTER OUT THERE BUT THE SKIING DOWN TURN TO CORN AND MADE THE SKIING ENJOYABLE.
