Comments
Comments: I bare booted from the Ferncroft lot to the south summit of Whiteface on almost all dry trail. No snow, just a few minor minor icy monorail remnants. No ice on the ledges. Spikes went on after the summit ledge to the actual summit and all the way to and over Passaconaway. Rollins Trail was all firm consolidated trailbed and monorail, even with temps in the high 40's/low 50's. No postholing at all. The same with Dicey's Mill to the summit, except for some exposed rock/ledge. There was about 100 yds on the Walden trail that was snow free below the summit of Passaconaway. Square Ledge Trail was a mixed bag of consolidated trail, hard monorail, dry trail, and minor postholes above the ledge. Below the ledge was mostly dry trail with patches of consolidated snow/ice until the Square Ledge Branch. From the Branch to Mast Road Trail was a mix of lightly consolidated granular snow, postholes and dry trail. Old Mast Road Trail was an enjoyable dry trail with newly cleaned waterbars. Snowshoes got a free ride today.
