Comments
Comments: This was a three night out and back to Sunday River Whitecap via the Grafton Loop from the south lot. Crusty snow with powder below on the first day gave way to sticky and melty snow on the last couple of days. Not sure the trail I broke is still there, but there may be traces to follow.
