I had hiked Mt. Rose earlier in the year, and had been looking for the opportunity to come back and try the route in the winter.

I had filled up my camelback bladder before leaving, but accidentally set it down on the bite valve and it drained while I was driving to the trailhead. I figured that the recent warm weather would generate some snowmelt somewhere along the trail, but it turned out to be a very dry day...

A summer variant of this route can be found here.

Trailhead along i395 just over the hill from the ski resort. Hit the trail just as the sun was rising.

This trailhead sign is around 6 feet tall, so there was about 5 feet of snow on the ground.

The non-wilderness portion of the trail had been well traveled by snowmobiles and had a well consolodated surface that didn't require donning snowshoes

Small field below Relay Ridge that has a pond in the summer. Looks like some skiiers had decended from the ridge.

The right turn into the Rose Wilderness granted a first view of the peak.  No snomobile tracks after this point, but there were signs of several skiier and snowshoers since last snowfall.
