Comments: Took the airline trail up and down, it was in fantastic shape for snowshoeing and I had zero issues. As I was driving towards the Appalachia lot from MA I really wasn't expecting much of a view from Adams due to how cloudy it was. I was wrong, once I reached above treeline the sun was blinding and there were blue skies everywhere. I wore a thin long sleeve shirt with the sleeves rolled up for the last 2 miles to the summit. Encountered several other solo hikers and a few pairs and nearly everyone seemed pretty shocked by the amazing conditions. I even encountered one guy who had gone up the ravine towards the star lake trail but didn't have time to make it all the way to the summit of adams unfortunately. Overall a fantastic and memorable day.
