Comments: Felt great to be back in the Whites again. Views along trail down lower but clouded in at top. Faintly see I93 from east lookout. Light traction worked fine today (shoes took a ride) as it was just cold enough. Bottom was getting sticky around 1:00-1:30 and upper half was nice powder. My guess would be with warming conditions there is still enough snow up higher where one may need snowshoes. I wandered around some north of summit on untracked terrain and was hitting about 5" of new powder on top of a mostly solid crust. No idea how much snow depth was below this. One had the option of staying on tracked trail which had descent traction (no ice) or sliding straight down through the glade area. I chose trail as I needed to stir up those downhill muscles as well. Sticky snow was getting slick causing a few unintentional slides.
