Comments: Trails are still in excellent shape, for now. Postholes were avoidable. The slippery sections from sledders were passable but difficult. Many folks (like me) stepped on the snow at the edge without postholing. Some of these footsteps will remain as "steps" but for how long? Willey Range Trail was less packed out but passable in microspikes. Half of the 8 folks I met wore snowshoes, and there were one or two bare-booters (who probably only got to Field)
