Comments
Comments: I used microspikes until after the last crossing and then kept my snowshoes on until Gale River Loop Road and used microspikes on the road walks. Trails are broken out well up to South Twin with minimal drifting. Twinway down to hut had deep snow and only one other snowshoe track early on Sunday morning but a group was coming through later so it should be packed down better now. Frost Trail and Gale River Trail had a great snowshoe track.
