Scenario

It’s mid-January and you’re on vacation with 2 friends in the Rockies. Today you’re on the way to Glacier Park.  You were supposed to arrive at Glacier park airport yesterday, but because of Airmets and Pireps reporting icing along the route of flight you decided to land, and spent the night in Bozeman, MT (KBZN). This morning you're continuing on to KGPI; you need to be in GPI in 3 hours where a car service is scheduled to bring your group to a glacier tour in the park and everyone is looking forward to that. The airplane is a Cessna T206, you’ll find the appropriate AFM pages are attached.
