Comments
Comments: Trail was broken out, but far from packed. As the other reports have noticed, the powder was pretty soft, especially up high. Once out of the fir trees in the afternoon, the bottom part began to get quite sticky.

Saw most people in snowshoes, but a few in spikes with snowshoes on their bags. People seemed hesitant to put them on, which was a bummer because it made for really rough footing going back down. Snowshoes are the way to go, IMO.
