If you start at the corners in Wilmington and walk the roads to the top now that the road is closed, does that count as climbing a 46er?

Skiable from the gate but it was pretty icy-slushy-grosss. Iíve skied it under worse conditions, but it certainly wasnít great

Your hiking/climbing the mountain under your own power, counts in my book. I've hiked up the trail from the reservoir and down the ski slope (not fun), down the trail and down the road. Haven't done the approach from Whiteface Landing or via Marble Mountain yet.

Here is a report from yesterday. Too bad about the apparent continued plowing. http://www.jackrabbittrail.org/conditions.

I agree, though much prefer going up trail. Went up trail and skied down road once. That was fun.
Agreed on descending Marble Mt. t-bar line...ouch. Reservoir trail is nicer, though a little longer.
