Comments: We set up a car spot at the Beaver Brook picnic area in case we were feeling ambitious towards Galehead. Our team of 2 broke trail today, most of it in ankle deep snow plus random drifts. The trail was broken out heading up the Fire Warden's Tr up Hale. We had one wrong turn between 2nd and 3rd crossing. We had no issues crossing at 3rd crossing. After countless snow laden tree branches to the face, we made it to the socked in summit of the Twins (thank you clouds). We then proceeded down Twinway, making excellent time blowing through unpacked powder towards Galehead Hut. We made short work heading up Galehead and back. We met a group of 4 that was doing the same route we were (so 6 people packed out this route). We then followed Garfield Ridge Tr and Gale River Tr, dealing with unpacked powder at first, then sticky spring snow as the sun came out and heated things up.
