Once you get to where the snow ends, turn back around an ski it.  You will be able to see where the tight spots/shallow spots are on the bootpack up.

It's a classic line that gets a lot of looks but not too many tracks.

To access the trailhead from Colorado 82 (between Independence Pass and Aspen), go 6.4 miles on a dirt road (Lincoln Creek Road). Passenger cars can make it but you will probably scrape in a few spots. The trailhead is 0.3 mile after the dam. Hike and/or skin over easy terrain 3.2 miles to Grizzly Lake at 12,500 ft.
