Ah yes, the PASS. Well 35 years ago I skied it on Epoke skinny XC skis and lightweight 3 pin boots (ankle height) with a 60 lbs pack on my back. Ah, to be young again. I'd say the best equipment, as was mentioned, would be a wide XC medal edged ski with a boot like the Excursion or comparable one of the non plastic types. You only have the one real climb for the entire trip and that's the pass, so lighter weight pay's off for most of the trip. You could also just haul a pair of snowshoes for the climb and use the hiking trail up vs the ski route. The best part is coming down the pass on the way back :-)
