Comments: Gorge Brook was classic well frozen snowshoe groomed track in the AM. I used microspikes top to bottom with no postholing. There was some evidence of deep postholes from yesterday so that implies that it could be different story later in the day. The Carraige Road past the Glencliff junction was a different story. I switched to snowhoes quickly. There were footprints from barebooters that probably had a less fun day. They were sinking 8 to 10' most steps and 2 feet in other places. There is still 4 to 5 feet of snow up high. Dont be dumb and leave the snowshoes in the trunk. Snapper trail has rough snowshoe track but its messy in spots, lots of postholes.

Not a lot of folks on the trails despite a beautiful day, I had the summit to myself for 15 or 20 minutes near noon. It was hazy in the AM but just kept clearing all day.
