Comments
Comments: I encountered about 30 (!) people today on the trails. About 20 of the hikers wore snowshoes for both ascent and descent which helped to pack down and stabilize the trail.
The trails were pretty solid with about 2 inches of soft powder in the morning and only a few post holes by the afternoon.
