Comments: Ski trails- L Binder and Tote Toad to the Sugarload spur to the AT

Weaved our way through closed ski trails and ended up on a few open ones. Got offered a beer or two. Made it to the summit in an hour and a half. Walked around looking for the trail to continue. Once we got on it easy route finding until the junction with the AT. After that blazes few and far in between. A lot covered by 6-8ft of snow. We stayed on track for the most part with the exception of a few short segments. Dig out the spur trail sign to Spaulding. PS if you’re using Alltrails or Gaia as GPS, both wrong as to where the AT runs in there. GPS said we were way off course when we were standing next to a white blaze.
