In retrospect, I can barely recommend Mount Dyson as a worthwhile winter objective and only because Wolf Creek trail is itself surprisingly interesting to hike, snowshoe, or even ski (last winter, I made it as far as the tributary on cross-country skis). In spring or summer, the Sheep River would likely be too problematic to cross, and Wolf Creek trail would also probably be unpleasantly muddy.
