Mt Dickerman is often lead in the fall, but not so often in January and February because sometimes the road is blocked due to snow.  Hopefully that won't be the case.

Assuming the snow level stays well above the trailhead, we will find all of the following:
Soft dirt trail, snow covered trail, ice covered trail, open snow slopes and wind scoured ridge.  And if we are lucky, we will find blue skies and views to lots of peaks all around us.
