Comments
Comments: Cold start -17 but warmed up quickly breaking trail up North Twin to South. Averaged 3" to a foot in drifts at times. Lots of drifts going to South. Just a beautiful bluebird day on the ridge. Going Down twin way was a fast snow shoe slide. Some slick spots but easily managed. From hut to Galehead was a well packed trail.Garfield ridge trail was well broken out. Just before the campsite 3 large ice bulges made for a sketchy assent. But other than that smoothe sailing to Garfield trail. I would recommend snow shoes or traction for Garfield ridge trail though. Garfield trail was a packed highway. A little boney towards the end but in great shape. We saw 3 others at the hut enjoying this beautiful day. When I got to Garfield there were a couple of skiers and a gentlemen finishing his winter 48. Congrats to you:) Great day spent with Renee and Jason...
