Comments
Comments: Snowshoes were a must on most sections; I wore them start to finished. Ammo is packed powder with very little exposed ice. Above treeline, there are some fairly big drifts, powder, and semi supportive snow, all of which made for good snowshoeing. The north side of Washington in blown fairly bare with exposed blue ice, making it the one section I considered switching out of snowshoes. Upper Jewell trail was not well traveled at all, with just one set of snowshoe tracks. The lower trail has seen more bareboot traffic.
