Comments
Comments: Snowshoes/trail breaking car to car. 4" fresh snow at start increasing to a foot plus on the ridge with deeper drifts. Final scramble up Moriah from Kenduskeag jct. was challenging. Was wishing for full crampons (for front points) and ice axe, but the three of us eventually made it up!

Looked like C-M Trail had been snowshoed, then barebooted from Gorham. Our beautiful snowshoe track is WAY nicer right now. :) Note: trail is broken out, but footing is loose, not hardpacked.

* YES: Bring snowshoes *
