Default For views: Zoa Peak vs Needle Peak Saddle?

in winter (eg. right now), which one of these would have the best views overall? i know everyone has their own preferences but any opinions are welcomed!

for the needle peak, if we do go, it will only be up to the saddle where it splits to flat iron and the needle peak itself.

which one is more travelled? (prefer if the trail is already broken into).

IMHO The needle saddle will offer better views for sure. Zoa is easier and the trail is likely defined equally well, Needle has more steep sections to switch back also, but certainly worth it.
