Comments
Comments: The trails were well packed except on Twin-Way between the South Twin summit and the Bondcliff Trail. I could have used snowshoes on that section, but I didn't bother to put them on. I used spikes on the entire loop, but they were optional. The summits were not in the clouds, and there were some views. The trees near the summits were encased in snow/ice and were very beautiful.
