Comments
Comments: Twinway is choppy and drifted in spots between Guyot and South Twin. All other trails are packed snow with icy spots, snow starts around 2,000 feet, microspikes worked fine. Great first day of Spring, beautiful weather and only a couple of people out, really quiet day along the trails!
