CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Those thinking of climbing a 14er in the near future should really pay attention to the conditions in the high country. The trail to Mount Bierstadt in Clear Creek County is covered in snow.

The Alpine Rescue Team shared a picture on social media on Friday.

“Only a few inches of the top of the willows to the east appear above the snow surface,” they wrote.

They warn anyone who who wants to try to hike to pack for the conditions.
