Comments
Comments: Flume trail was good till we got near the bottom of the flume slide when we followed the track wich was not on the trail and by that time we had lost the actual trail too. So we followed the track which happen to be skiers skiing the slide. So we ended up himing up the actual flume slide. It was very steep and crampons are strongly recommended.and an ice axe is not a bad idea for safty. Once at the summit we headed over to mt. Libertythen we used but sleds all the way down to the brook on the decent. It was a very fast ride with perfect conditions for sledding :) summit to car in about 1 hr 15 mins.
