Comments
Comments: Swirling clouds-easy surface of frozen granular crust after thaw-->refreeze. Snowshoes were good for us, although previous post-holers left irregular surface. traction might be ok if cold continues. most of granite ledges above treeline blown clear of ice & snow.
Kestrel data: T=12F W= 25mph avg 41mph peak gust WC= ~ minus 17F
