Comments
Comments: Beautiful winter day to be above treeline! Ski trails were in perfect condition and the Saddleback staff was very friendly and helpful. Trail to the summit was postholed from skiiers, but not a problem to walk.


Ridge is blown off and breakable crust over a few inches of snow was easy to walk. Deep snow in the col was not bad to navigate. A bit of icy ledges were fine with snowshoes. Another great day out in Maine!
