Comments
Comments: Pretty packed down til about 3000ft elevation. Beyond that point it got pretty steep and the snow was looser - snowshoes a must. We layered down as we got into the groove of it but the wind tunnel along the A-Z Trail chilled our bones and we stayed pretty layered after that. Superb sledding conditions down Mt. Tom Spur and Avalon Trail. Beware the snow drift next to Mt Avalon - took me a hot second to locate the trail!

Gorgeous bluebird kind of day, though windy. Saw about 5 others on the trail.
