おはようございます。言葉を失くす素晴らしい絶景ですね。登山用の専門用具がなくても行ける場所ですか?F+L。

Greetings J-ryu, The trail to this lake gets a great deal of snow. The first 1/4 mile of the trail is a wind packed slope at 45 degrees making it almost impossible for snowshoes. Skis and crampons work fine but the crampons break through the snow crust easily and the snow is more than waist deep. Above that point the trail is very easy except that the avalanche danger is very high as you cross three avalanche paths. Back country travel can be exciting. Cheers, Rich
