Comments
Comments: Very cold temps today and lots of snow out there! Trail is packed out all the way to the summit. Saw several other groups out today - a group of skiers were first up/down the mountain. Everyone else had snowshoes on except for one barebooter who was struggling and doing a lot of postholing making it difficult for us coming up behind him. There were some snowshoers after him so hopefully the trail got smoothed out on their descent. Snowshoes are definitely needed right now. Didn't see much traffic heading up to the end of Zealand Rd after the Hale Brook cutoff - there was a faint track, but looked like it was drifted in.
