I wanted to get to the top of Wing Mountain with my radio gear for Summits on the Air. There was a decent amount of snow on the ground and I didn’t know if I would be able to get close enough to the base due to a bunch of road closures in the area. I drive to FR 222 and found it closed so I drove up to 222B. The Wing Mountain Snow Play Area was in operation and they were kind enough to let me park at the entrance and hike in through the sledding area without paying. This hike, which was about 1.2 miles each way, nearly killed me with the 1-2 feet of snow I had to trudge through. The steep profile alone makes this a challenging bushwhack hike, but adding the snow caused me to nearly abort a few hundred feet from the top. I did make it to the top and felt quite accomplished, though.
