Comments
Comments: Great day for this summit with a mixed bag of weather. Zealand Road as well as the trails have a beautiful snowshoe track that is overall well packed with a small amount of loose powder on top. Nice views from the hut quickly turned to light snow and increasing winds by the time I reached Zeacliff. From this point there was some drifting with the trail being partially obscured at several points. After summiting Mt Zealand my tracks were completely covered that I had just made on the way up. Once back on Zealand trail the sun appeared with patchy blue skies briefly and then back to wind driven snow. I met no others today and this completes my Grid for February. Looking forward to ZBonds next week! If hiking this route in the next few days I highly recommend snowshoes🙂
