Comments
Comments: Snowshoes car to car, breaking trail all the way. Most challenging spots were above/near treeline where snow had drifted to 3-4 feet and would not support our weight. In the woods was more powdery, ranging from 4" down low to about a foot up high.

Winds on Bondcliff and Guyot were strong enough to push us around a bit. Hillary step was harder than usual but better once we got some of the snow out of the way.

There were just two of us, so trail is only kinda-sorta broken out, with long-legged steps.

Zealand Trail was still a bit boney, but the road had been skied.

*Bring snowshoes* No use for spikes on this route today and we didn't bring 'em.
