Comments
Comments: Wore snowshoes the whole day. Started at Crawford Depot, ended at Willey House Station Road. Trail was well-packed to Mount Tom. Willey Range Trail had some drifts near Mt. Field. From Mt. Field to Mt. Willey, the trail was a bit softer, but still fairly well-packed.

The descent off of Mt. Willey toward the Ethan Pond Trail was steep as expected. It was mostly good, but the ladders are tricky right now. They were mostly snow covered making things just steep, but portions were uncovered, and that made it extra difficult to get past.
