Comments
Comments: Beelined up the Smith Walton ski trail (dusting of snow starting about halfway up). Snow has been made on other trails, but not this one yet. The short stretch of the Elizabeth Warren Trail to the summit had some ice on it.

Retraced my steps down Smith Walton, then cut over on the auto road to the Elizabeth Warren Trail, which was generally dry except on ski trail crossings (frozen granular). Balance Rock Trail back to the parking lot was mostly dry.
