||To anyone heading up to Galehead/South Twin...our most sincere apologies for the trail you’ll encounter tomorrow. |
Seven of us in snowshoes managed to absolutely obliterate the trail today. Snow was soft to start, even softer upon return. Monorail was disintegrating under our feet the entire time. Ever see a man posthole while wearing 30” snowshoes? Because that happened. Multiple times. No form of traction was going to save you from the crumbling snow today.
As such, after the freeze tonight, I’m sure the trail will be in rough shape tomorrow. Best of luck navigating the frozen posthole wasteland that is Gale River Trail.
