Comments
Comments: Quick trip up this morning before the next storm rolls in. About 2 inches of fresh powder on top of a soft foot bed. Lots of signs of postholes that had be slightly covered by the new snow. Snowshoes are a must right now to keep the trails in good condition. We were able to fill in some of the postholes but we met a barebooter as we were leaving the summit. Not much in the way of views today due to the cloud cover and light snow falling.
