Comments
Comments: Decided to do a Blizzard night hike up Kearsarge. The beginning of the Winslow trail was unbroken, but the powerline was packed down so we went that way for a while. Cut back over to the Winslow trail about 2/3 the way up. Deep powder everywhere (12-16") with ice underneath. still slippery. The usual difficulty following the Barlow trail up on top, but made it into the trees. Barlow is now broken out all the way down to the St park.
