Comments
Comments: About half an inch to an inch of powder from Thursday on top of a frozen granular and occasional blue ice base. Due to the blue ice, light traction is a good idea. Fire tower steps not icy.

About six inches of snowpack in the woods with a crust firm enough to support boots at below freezing temperatures. Nice sunrise jog, though a bit chilly.
