Heading West on Highway 20 toward Washington Pass. The road is closed every year with first major snowfall and does not open till May. Luckily for us it was plowed till Silver Star Creek. Originally we planned to do a hike to Cutthroat lake and, possibly, further up to Cutthroat Pass. This would mean we'd have to snowshoe for an extra 8 km from Silver Star Creek, but due to late start and not so good weather outlook we settled on Driveway Butte hike.
