Comments
Comments: Great day. Cold snow going in. Skied to just below the first rise. Was able to spike up to where the trail split for shelter and Fire wardens. After that there had been 2-3 people the previous day but it was much less consolidated so switched to snow shoes. Felt like a slog at the top would take 20 steps and stop, repeat. Snow got sticky going up to West but Avery had the advantage of being on the north side. The problem there is that it is all stone on top so did the rock walk trying not to break another tooth on my snowshoes. Way down was sticking but just focused on packing down the steps. Ski out was great the snow was much faster. Saw 3 people on the way out none on the hike. At the moment the trail is very good.
