Comments
Comments: Ascended on the ski trails, which have patchy but decent snow cover. Barebooted the lower third of the mountain, then snowshoed from there up, as (with a couple of bare exceptions) it was close to wall to wall with a few feet of base. The short section of the Long Trail still has a few feet of base. Above 3K in elevation still has full snow cover in the woods on this side of the mountain. Half a dozen or so folks skinning up and skiing down.
