Comments
Comments: Valley Way in great shape. There was enough snow up top to stay in snowshoes all day. Most of the trails above treeline were drifted over. Unfortunately it was completely fogged in. Finding cairns was challenging or impossible. I had planned to do a traverse but bailed due to visibility. Nine others came up after me, so VW well packed. Hope the two attempting traverse and two heading to Sphinx Col had better luck than I. Perfect weather day to be out except the fog.
