Comments
Comments: Spring conditions. Still plenty of snow at 1-2 feet depth above 3000 ft in places and even some isolated depths near 3. Snowshoes strongly advisable to minimize postholing. Monorail stable in AM but NOT in PM. Tough conditions and slow going coming down. Extended hiking times needed for safety to avoid injury. Wear waterproof boots if you have 'em and gaiters of course. Beautiful day with bluebird skies in AM and light breezes made a challenging day enjoyable.
