Comments
Comments: Party of 1. Found N Imp Trail broken out well to the Imp Face then moderately so to the ridge via N. Carter Trail. Ridge from junc. N. Carter Tr. to S. Carter peak was not broken out--lots of hard and soft drifts, some of it deep, hard going. Wind knocked me over at Middle Carter. Broken out well from S. Carter to junction of Carter Dome Trail. 1st 200 feet up Hight broken out then nothing but knee deep drifts until I met a couple descending just below summit. Wasn't much but I appreciated it. Hight summit blown bare.
From Carter Dome to Notch broken out well with butt sled runs and fun rocks poking out. Wildcat Ridge was broken out but was a mess of snowshoe twisting postholes thanks to gratuitous bare booting--difficult to navigate at the end of the day.
