Comments
Comments: Just wanted to let folks know that Air Line has no snow or ice anywhere. We got above the trees but the wind sent us back down. Took Upper Bruin to cut over as Baxter doesn't like to go back the same way. There was a bit of ice and snow on this trail. I thought about putting the spikes on but managed to sneak around it. On Valley Way we saw a few small patches of snow and ice but were able to get around without any problem. The peaks were in the clouds so couldn't see anything but I suspect 2 days of 80+ weather pretty much melted most of the snow. There was still some in the ravines.
