Comments
Comments: Initial approach had a decent, frozen snowshoe track without postholes. East Rattlesnake Trail hasn't seen much use, so there's not a well established footbed. Ridge Trail, on the other hand, was treated brutally by a parasitic postholer.

Generally 1-2 feet of snowpack.

Hopefully the incoming storm allows courteous snowshoers the opportunity to repair the posthole damage.
