Comments
Comments: No snow to 3100 feet with spotty monorail to the ledges..Nasty blowdown patch coming up to the Wonolancet Outlook.. Ledges dry and snow free with hard pack to the south outlook. Rollins trail solid monorail today and we used spikes which were perfect. Up to Passaconaway solid monorail with some icy spots..stuck with the spikes and they were fine today but more warm weather will soften the deep snow and snowshoes will be needed again..Good day out
