Comments
Comments: The 1 mile road walk was pretty easy on packed snow with an icy base. Snowmobiles had been over the road since Wednesdays storm. Skylight trail was packed by one skier who switched to snowshoes after the bridged crossing all the way to the LT after the storm so it made going very easy. We (5) packed about 6" of new snow all the way to Wilson on top of a pretty decent base from Slow and Steady's one-way trip of last week(thanks). There were several sizable drifts encountered but mostly just 6" of new snow. All in all a very enjoyable trail in what turned out to be a beautiful winter day.
