Comments: I wore MSR's from the start, mainly for the Televators. Trails are mostly solid well formed monorails. Willey Range Tr is beat up due to drifting bear booting/post holes. Already a very narrow trail. Post holes rule this trail. On the sides & in the middle. Earlier reports state trouble finding trail due to drifting. That spot is a hard left & is a mess!!! But thank you for breaking it out! IMO snowshoes are a must on this section. Many out today carrying their shoes. Shoes were the way to go today. Hiked with an AMC group for a bit.....1st winter 4000 Footers. Awesome job Folks!!! o many nice people today, braving the winds with no views. A great day to be out!
