Comments
Comments: Quick traverse South to North over the Willey range with Kyle and Ben. I wore Yak-Tracks although Kyle and Ben got by fine without any traction. Snow depth was minimal other than along the top of the ridge which was a consistent 4 inches with larger drifts up to maybe a little under a foot. We stuck with trail runners for possibly the last time till Spring. Feet stayed mostly dry. Iciest sections are the parking lots on either side of the ridge. Great day with mostly clear skies.
