Comments
Comments: All trails to Liberty were well packed. Micro spikes worked great. The saddle over to Flume has an established trough, but loosely packed. The steeps were more difficult to manage with spikes due to nature of loose, unpacked snow. We switched over to snowshoes (televators were helpful) for the trip over and back. With a good 8 inches of new snow forcasted for Monday, plan to bring your snowshoes.
