Tincup pass has snowdrift on east side about 75' wide, 200 yards from top of pass. So close but we didn't have a shovel. If you could widen the foot path that's already there you'd be good to go.

Thanks. We were there last week. Still pretty toasty (100's) down in the valleys but mountains and pacific coast were nice (80's). It just snowed a bit in Denver so I'm cooling off nicely!:D
