1" low - 12"+ high. Crusted and pretty solid. We left snowshoes in the car and used spikes most of the way. Could have used snowshoes on the upper third.
The summit-canister is broken at the top and content is exposed to the elements. Not much we could do about it other than make sure the bags were sealed. The note-book is full and there are a few lose paper-slips. A new canister and new supplies really needed.
