Comments
Comments: Airline Cut Off and upper Valley Way still have sections of deeper snow. We managed to stay on the monorail on the Cut Off and didn't use traction. We did put the spikes in a section of Valley Way where it was looking particularly slick in a steeper section. Other than that the snow was easy to manage. Guessing it won't be there much longer.
