I have to agree with Hank. You will most likely not even get anywhere near the staging area for the hike with your vehicle due to snow. The steep part of the hike in deep snow is even worse, and the temperatures are well below freezing at night. I recorded a min. of -3F so far this winter at my trailer in Rachel, where it is quite a bit warmer than on Tikaboo. The attached link shows weather data for Tikaboo, but I suspect the temperature graph is way off.

This link shows the Rachel temperatures, which I can more or less confirm:

Subtract about 10 degrees for Tikaboo.

Most of us consider April the earliest for a Tikaboo hike.
