Comments: A good hike on this low/lower wind and high(er) temperature day. 2"-3" of new untouched fluff this morning in the OBP and FW wooded areas. I wore snowshoes start to finish and televators were a help. There was a combination of shallow snow, ankle/knee/thigh deep drifts and ice covered rocks along the ridge. Visibility was down but I was able to see Lonesome lake and below for a short stint. Winds were completely calm in the wooded areas. Winds were stiff above tree line, a 20-25 mph steady wind with 30-35 mph gusts with the strongest winds on the peaks and along the stretch from Lincoln to Haystack. Trailspotting got a little tricky at times. It was cairn to cairn ascending Lafayette and the rocks trail borders were visible for much of the ridge walk, but chose poorly and you'll end up in some deep drifts.
