Comments
Comments: Fresh one inch all the way to spruces than a bit more from there up. The lower section of Liberty Springs up to about the junction w/Flume Slide is a jumble frozen mess. Above this it was smooth sailing, with nice snowpack. Above the tent sites the snow got deeper (mostly from drifts) but still not enough to warrant snowshoes. The ridge had some big drifts but with the snow coming and the drifting everything will be buried. No views until I got down to about the tent sites than it started clearing. All of the rocks from the trail junction up to about the tent sites are ice domed so you would want traction. Many, like me carried snowshoes but were in spikes. Really a one day report if the weather man is to believed as we will all be wearing snowshoes (I hope).
