Comments
Comments: Airline is snow and ice-free, with the exception of a few very small patches of lingering ice that you can step around. There is some lingering monorail on Gulfside right before you get to the hut (coming down from Adams) that you can also step around. Osgood up to Madison is dry and snow/ice free. The top 400' of Valley Way has lingering, rotten monorail between 6"-12" deep. I found spikes helpful coming down it. Otherwise the trails are wet, but they often are.
