We are planning a backpack trip from Jackson Overlook to Lake McDonald via Gunsight Pass. I am hearing snow/ice on the trail? My husband and I are not experienced on ice and snow so wondered what it was really like and if we need to reconsider. We are planning 4 days total and have as of yet to get the campgrounds we wanted but have been told by backcountry camping they will try to accomodate us when we get there. Thanks for any advice and help you can give us. Our trip is planned for Aug 21-24 2012.
