Comments
Comments: I wore micro spikes the whole way but I should have worn snowshoes. Others did and packed trail well but I still post holed several times and I don't like messing up the trail. I did see a few people without any traction aids and they were struggling. The trail to and from the Stowe Pinnacle packed well, less so after that and had to break out the last 100 yards or so to the summit of Mount Putnam.
