||Ice - Blue, Snow/Ice - Monorail (Stable), Snow - Wet/Sticky |
||Snowshoes, Light Traction |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||All crossings have open water but are easy to get across. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||A couple of blowdowns on the Carter-Moriah trail between the 2 jcts. to Mt. Hight. I post-holed when by-passing one of them and measured 3 ft of snow.
Some blowdowns on North Carter but they have been there for awhile and are not a problem. |
||Cinnilla navigated the crossings and the ice-floats with caution but had no difficulties anywhere. The mushy snow later in the day makes for tiring conditions. |
||A few flies were out. |
|Lost and Found:
||The mono-rail (where present) is quite stable but narrow.|
There is significant ice-floats on the Imp trail - with water running over the ice in many places.
The choice of "foot-wear" is a bit of a challenge. I used snow-shoes between Zeta Pass and and the Imp-North Carter jct. Elsewhere I either bare-booted or used light traction.
