Comments
Comments: New snow of about 6" was unbroken. Just south of the AT/LT split, a packed private trail came in from the development. From here, the LT was broken to the shelter and the AT was broken beyond the Deer Leap Junction. We started by following the LT past the shelter and a short distance along the east slope of Elbow Peak. We bushwhacked up from the southeast in open woods and about 8" of powder over a firm base. The highpoint is recognized. We returned in our tracks and took the AT north, to Deer Leap tr. which was unbroken. We followed the trail to the height of land, breaking 8" of powder, with much higher drifts. We made the short bushwhack to the recognized highpoint. On the way down, we encountered some barebooters, who were not postholing too much, but things did rough up a bit.
