Comments: crunchy on the herd path from the basin but once to Liberty Springs Trail things loosened up. Passed a large group in spikes who were slipping some but not really damaging trails in the morning. Snowshoes with televators were perfect for ascent. Once to the ridge things a bit less consolidated. Windy on the ledges and summit cone. Dropping down the herd path to the ridge trail in deep snow and the track over to flume was much less consolidated. Nice to meet Postal Patty on the way over. A bit cloudy and chilly on Flume, we enjoyed the soft snowshoe conditions back over to Liberty and down. Once to the hardwoods zone the snow was much softer in the sun and there were quite a few more holes, even in the center of the trail. Great day out with Valerie, Gary, and John and Pepper
