Comments
Comments: Sabbaday is well packed now, but soft, snowshoes are a must. 40miler and another went up Pine bend, but had lost the trail, so I chose to stick with what I knew for the trip down.

Myself and two others encountered a fair bit of work breaking out Sabbaday to the base of the steeps, where we met 40miler and the other hiker. Steeps were still tough in their track. Up on the ridge, snow is much more supportive.

From Middle tri, I broke trail to just before S. Tri and launched a bushwhack straight for West Sleeper the woods were open, and the snow was supportive; I would recommend this short cut for certain conditions. I hit Kate Sleeper about 0.1 mi from the summit of West. I followed my tracks out, with a side trip to the north peak where I met three people who went up the north slide.

The first NH 100 highest I hiked in winter was different than the one on this site. With W. Sleeper, I have now done the one on this site in winter (Dixville was the other discrepant peak).
