Comments
Comments: Bucklin Trail up to Killington had been traveled by 2-3 pairs of snowshoes yesterday, so there was an established track, with an unstable monorail, which will continue to be broken down by backcountry skiers. Closer to the summit, high winds had caused snow drifts and I had to pack that area down again. Given the snowfall this weekend, it was remarkably easier than I'd expected, with minimal snow breaking.
