Comments
Comments: Pretty much snowed on us all day. Depths range from 2-4 inches of new snow.

Camp Dodge Bushwhack-broken out with sticky snow

Imp Trail-more of the same until you get to higher elevation and the snow became drier

Carter Moriah Trail-snow depths ranged a little bit from Middle to Zeta pass from 2-5inches of fresh snow. Once you started to ascent to Carter Dome the snow drifts were more prominent. Not too difficult though.

Wildcat Ridge Trail-there was new snow and drifting snow with moderate winds today. The 1400ft of gain from 19 mile brook to wildcat A was fairly broken out. A big thank you from the gentleman that descended the steeps and used great step techniques rather than butt sliding. He did a great job and made it easier and safer for our ascent to Wildcat A.

Ski Slope-busy, stayed to the far right, frozen granular. I was in snow shoes all day.

Thank you to Steve Barbour for joining me and the car spot. #Awesome#lovinlife#Feelingood#notsolo
