Comments
Comments: Our original plan was to go up either Kendron or Ethan Pond. We pulled into Kendron and it didn't look broke out. I walked about 100ft of it, it was solid from what I saw but with the 2" of fresh snow. Neither of us had done it in winter so we opted for a slightly more boring but more straight forward route - Crawford Station. All trails in great shape. We laid fresh tracks on Avalon on the way up, passed by a disgruntled snowshoer as we didn't feel the need to don snowshoes for 2-3" of fresh pow.

There is some drifting on WRT between F & W but nothing too bad.

Spikes are plenty good right now. Very few postholes. Quite refreshing from postholio yesterday on the hancocks
