Comments
Comments: Lower part of LS trail up to Flume Slide Trail is starting to open up, some sections have no snow left. Rest of LS is great, thanks to some sledders who smoothed things out nicely in spots. Easy day on microspikes. Some blowdowns easily navigated around, over or under. FR trail over to Flume also very nice, didn't encounter the rough surface mentioned in an earlier post. There were some hip deep postholes along the way but easily avoided. Started to soften up toward the bottom of LS trail in the afternoon, but not a problem. Stellar day on the ridge!
