Comments
Comments: Warm sun and very little winds today on the Moose. We were able to bareboot the entire trip without issues. Ravine Lodge Road was plowed and sanded. A little slippery in spots but easy enough without any traction. Snapper Trail was hard packed by snowshoes and skis. It was a bit softer beyond the Gorge Brook Junction. Carriage road had snowmobile tracks all the way to the turn around just below the Glencliff junction. From the Glencliff junction to the summit was hard packed snow mixed with ice above the scrub. Traction would have helped here but it was short lived and we managed fine without. Great views and a nice sunny summit.
