Comments
Comments: Today was a day I really wish I brought my mountaineering snowshoes or crampons for above timber, spikes where not enough to attempt to go back down LT. There are trails, ski trails, and whacks that go in a dozen directions down low, and the same goes for above timber. All in all a good day, trails are in good shape down low, slightly choppy from bare booters. I went in at about 0630 and utilized the cold firmness. Above timber is pretty well wind scarred so its nice and hard packed as well
