Snow at 3500' and Chainsaws desired
Took the bike almost up to the second Road to Trail switchback and then had to stop and turn around in the slush. The trail has several chainsaw jobs up to that point. You'll see where they are located in the link here. I-90 has less snow than SR-2 (according to a friend who just did Mailbox Peak) so you can climb higher on the I-90 trails.
