Does anyone know if it's possible to winter camp out near Icicle Creek? Is this something that ice climbers do? I was thinking it might be possible to just park in a cleared out spot and hike in just a bit to a spot where you can camp. We'll have skis w/ climbing skins, so travelling on unconsolidated snow isn't a challenge.

Yes, you can camp out there and can even skin in to some of the campground areas, specifically I've seen folks do it at the Eight Mile Trailhead. Just be aware that you still need a sno pass for your car if you're parking it down there.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
