Comments: WOW! Fantastic conditions today. Spikes from car to car. Trail is well packed and rocks are covered. Traction was the order of the day (though we saw 4 with no traction ascending Lincoln and it did not look easy. There descent from Lafayette would have been tricky). Most had snowshoes that got a ride today (nice to see so many prepared if needed!). If you like to wear snowshoes for the televators the trough was narrow and snowshoes would have been tough in some locations. From spruce grove up to the summit of Lafayette the trail was drifted but enough were on it to make a decent trail. The ridge also had some drifting but nothing major and it was also well broken though not consolidated as well as lower. Did see two in snowshoes on ridge and they were moving fine. The descent down FW was near perfect! Minimal icy spots with great snow coverage. Weather report was wrong and there was virtually NO WIND!
