Comments
Comments: Beautiful cold day on the trails making for excellent snowshoeing conditions. There is a lot of snow up there. I wouldn’t consider stepping off the trail without snowshoes . The trail was mostly a smooth monorail thanks to all who have been using their snowshoes . There were a few 8 inch deep postholes here and there but not too bad. Hopefully the snowshoeing continues to keep these trails as nice as they were today. Saw one guy skinning up Tom with skis and later saw his ski track along side the trail going down . Perfect powder for him too.
