Comments: I wish I could understand the thought process of people that go "oh we had 12+ inches of snow, I definitely don't need showshoes to hike." WEAR YOUR SNOWSHOES. endrant

Willard is a packed out highway.

AZ to Avalon was pretty well packed. I went up Avalon to WRT, broke out about 6" of fresh powder in spots, drifts much higher in other. Trail was obscure in spots to drifting. No issues on Avalon spur. I went and looked on the back side of Field going towards Willey, it was atleast 12" of fresh pow pow and was breaking it. I made it a few tenths before I realized I didnt want to break another 1.5m in deep snow :) Rode WRT back to AZ, packed out well. As is Tom. AZ from Tom to trailhead is probably in rough shape as bare booters on it behind me
