Comments: i ascended the mountain via ben, big ben, upper in between, upper swoop and high ridge trails. there was generally plenty of room to keep to the edge or off of the groomed surface. some junctions could be a problem to snowshoe across on very busy days. some drifting up around the highpoint of rosebrook just in the woods adjacent to the summit lift. from there i followed outer bounds until i saw signs for a snowshoe trail off to the left. this trail was broken out and led to the summit of mt. oscar (west peak). in places it coincides with glade skiing. for the descent i followed alpine gardens, abels traverse, oscar barrons and presidential ski trails back down to the base area.

the forecast had me a little psyched out this morning so i slept in and hit these peaks around mid day. ultimately it wasn't too bad up there and actually quite nice in the sun. views were fantastic from both rosebrook and oscar. the view up zealand valley from oscar and its perspective on mt. hale are particularly nice. thanks to the folks at bretton woods for seemingly being tolerant of responsible uphill travel.
