Comments
Comments: Mt Tripyramid trail on the ridge had an unstable monorail and postholes. Kate Sleeper trail (KST) had lots of snow and shin deep postholes - not fun. If you are going out on the Kate Sleeper trail or Mt. Tripyramid trail in the next few weeks, consider leaving the trail runners at home and bringing waterproof hiking boots + gaiters. Expect to posthole. Microspikes or crampons would NOT be helpful. Or, just wait a few weeks for the snow to melt if you must do a route that involves the KST; it will be much more enjoyable.

Whiteface + Passaconaway loop is free of snow except for a bit coming down on the north side of Whiteface. Fun! Managed to keep my feet mostly dry in trail runners.
