Comments
Comments: Jewel Trail was hard paced, as long as you stayed on the narrow center. Above tree line was boney. We used micros to the hut and switched to snowshoes for the trip out Valley Way. I ended up switching back to micros as the monorail was very narrow with lots of post holes making snowshoe travel difficult. Nice Pressie day today!
