Comments
Comments: Snow depths increased with elevation. Piper Mountain Trail was broken out but we and two others broke out the ridge over Belknap to Gunstock and down the Gunstock Mountain Trail in varying depths of snow to 12”. Some ski traffic on the hiking trails off Gunstock. Conditions demand snowshoes.

Beautiful, cold hike with Chris and Nancy.
