Comments
Comments: Mountain received 12" (reportedly) earlier this week. Half of the trail was broken out with the remainder previously broken but was covered by 3-4" of snow that fell last night. The last half of the hike was effort with only microspikes. Would've benefited from snowshoes. But several other parties were on the trail with me and by the time I descended, the trail was pretty well broken out.
