Comments
Comments: Ski trail was mostly still covered with snow, although there were significant patches of grass, rock, gravel and mud. We used Stabilicers, which worked fine, but on the ski slopes I would have preferred snowshoes, since the surface layer was soft and granular in many places. Final section on AT was mix of dry rock and ice with snow (monorail) right at the end before the observation platform. Snowshoes would have been very comfortable on the way down too.
