Comments
Comments: Starting at imp south did not see any snow or significant ice until 2600ft. From here there was mainly ice in the trails(thin) until 3000ft. Just before the junction for Imp and North Carter trail there was mainly hard packed snow with some ice patches here and there which continued most of the day. Fast track all the way to North Carter. Continued to have a very stable trail rail throughout the day. Used hillsounds all day and they worked great. The only time I felt the ice was problematic was coming off Wildcat C going to the Col. Trail was full of ice for much longer stretches. Need to be careful there for sure. It was fun to see the couple I talked to in the parking lot and then I ran into at Zeta Pass. Fun to listen to 8 people talking about all their lists they are working on. I can`t begin to tell you how awesome today was. The weather was perfect for what I had planned and the views were stunning. Fast track once again:13 miles-6500ft elevation 6hrs 30mins
