Comments
Comments: Very well-packed trail so long as we stayed on it, but difficult for skiing off-trail due to breakable crust. Summit was reportedly wind-blown with ice patches (we stopped at the firewarden's hut). Alexandria Ski Trail was well used by skiers and boarders so the crust was broken up.
