Comments
Comments: Trail was in great shape overall and allowed for fast travel. There were a few very small patches of snow drifted to 4-6" on the Willey Range Trail, but otherwise there was around 1" of loose powder that increased to about 2" as the day wore on and the squalls kept coming. We saw a few dozen people and everyone was in microspikes. The wind quickly filled in any foot prints in the powder.

Based on the squalls that we drove through on the way home, I'm guessing that snow shoes may be more of a necessity today.
