Comments
Comments: Amazing weather and trail conditions were good enough for an amazing day of hiking the Tripyramids. Hardly any wind at the summits and some light snow made the hike scenic and wintery.

My one complaint would be the large number of postholes along the Sabbaday Brook Trail. Please, if you are planning on hiking the Whites in the winter consider investing in some snowshoes for your safety and the safety of fellow hikers. Postholes can be dangerous when covered by snow, and generally make for an annoying hike.

Sabbaday Brook Trail was in decent shape but the snow was pretty loose and granular on the second half of the ascent. The Ridge between Middle and North Tripyramid summits was in much better shape, as was nearly all of Pine Bend Brook Trail. Didn't have a sled but slid down a few sections on my butt where the trail was smooth and steep.
