Granite in Winter

Thinking of giving it a shot, anyone been up there in winter know what itll look like?

My friends have been up there, they found epic avy conditions. I'm not sure if that was on Granite or Tempest just getting started across the saddle. A couple of my friends and I are interested in Granite as well perhaps the week before chrismas. As for what it looks like, hell frozen over might be fitting - but I like to think of it as a winter wonderland send me a message if your serious about going & looking for parners. If not, take goggles and a neoprene facemask... the wind blows half inch pebbles around. I pray you find a pleasant high pressure system, 3 of 4 of my winter trips up around the plateau have been bordering on nuts.
