Still a chance of a spring storm or two that will hit the crest
and lay some fresh snow. Time it right to avoid those hot sunny
approaches.

I tried the Whitney basin traverse in winter a few years ago, but ran out of time to finish it. I highly recommend it. Don't know if anyone has completed it in winter.

We have a small trip report about it here: http://www.summitpost.org/trip-report/483849/winter-whitney-basin-traverse.html

Just finished the full Palisade Traverse. Probably the first in winter? Enjoy.

The 2013 AAC Journal has a good article on Jed Porter & Ian McEleney's grand Full Palisade Traverse-Winter .

Damn this season would be the one to score "winter" ascents of anything in the Sierra!

You guys seeing some precip from this most recent system? We just got a foot or so here in the Wasatch, and it was NEEDED!! Our reservoirs are drying up fast...

a winter traverse of the ... Minarets
The longer winter approach (from Main Lodge) and the known technical difficulties of the traverse would make this a burly outing for sure.
