Comments
Comments: Bucklin broken out well by skiiers skinning up but beyond Cooper Lodge trail was not broken. Thanks to prior hiker who broke trail for half of Killington Spur before retreating- I broke the last tenth mile to the summit through deep new powder. Snowshoes very necessary. Rocks near summit currently covered by snow and/or rime ice, passable without removing snowshoes.
