Comments
Comments: Great conditions today. Not a lot of previous traffic, but the snow was consolidated and frozen. Sidewalk! Thanks to Remington34, and Ethan for packing down earlier this week. The bottom portion of the trail was getting exclusively bare boot traffic. The upper steep section was getting a mix of snowshoe and bare boot traffic. Only a very occasional posthole. The upper portion is a little tilled now. The hardpack, while great today, will probably be gone with the first warm up.

Great day for the summits. 20°F and 5 mph wind at the summit.
