Nov 27, 2016 8 of us out in a meter of fresh powder... we took the regular trail up to the ridge from Strawberry Flats (with copious effort and swapping trail-breakers every few minutes)... the we headed east along the ridge for about 2km still trudging through thigh to hip deep drifts until we started back down a gulley, truncating the main loop (we simply did not have enough time to do the full loop in these conditions) which was a direct shot north back to intersect our up trail and return to the vehicles.
It took us 8 hours with a strong group with a few short breaks.
Amazing day out in this pristine snow globe type wonderland.
Stay safe out there and have fun!
