Lost and Found
Lost and Found: I found someone’s Epic ski pass. Hopefully their season is done and they don’t need it. 
Comments: Haselton Trail was hard to follow, not packed by anyone ahead of us, and the snow was your typical spring post-holing. Snow shoes may have helped, but I think it would have been unlikely since it was a mix between bushwacking, wandering into tree wells, and saying “f-it, let’s just hike the glades”. Pretty slow going, but still passable. We met several skiers out for some spring turns at the top of Haselton where it intercepts the ski trail. The ridge between the Nose and the summit was relatively snow free and wonderfully clear rock. Headed back down via the Long Trail which is snowy with lots of boot skiing for the top 2/3 and then clearing out to a nice runnable, muddy/snow melt, trail. 4 out of 4 stars: would hike again.
