Comments
Comments: Such lovely conditions out there for my 1000th 4k summit!

Snowshoes are definitely the way to go on Tom, Field, and Willey. A-Z and Avalon were smooth and decently packed-down when I headed up. Broke out Willey Range over to Willey and was treated with unexpectedly lovely undercast/views. Willey Range from Field to Tom is in good shape, as is the Mt. Tom spur. A-Z to the Avalon intersection has some postholes, but fortunately nothing too bad as those barebooting were also sledding :)

Webster-Jackson is a super-packed-highway. I snowshoed as I headed straight over there from Crawford Depot, but one could use light traction if inclined. The summit ledges are covered in a couple inches of powder and were easy to get up/down.
