Union Peak & Jove Peak (winter)

12/29/15 - Beautiful winter wonderland day, but no summit. Snow was deep fresh dry powder. Smithbrook Road was well tromped down by prior skiers & snowshoers and easy travel. However, blazing trail through virgin powder was waist deep & nearly impossible; we only ascended 750' from the road in 2.5 hrs. Retreated to the 4500' basin S of Union Pk and did a lap around it, which was a workout in itself. Amazing snow shapes with such a large amount of snow still draped on the trees.
