Comments
Comments: The trails were in great shape. Lots of snow but very packed. We used snowshoes and most of the people we met had them also. We encountered several large groups and it made it for delays on the monorail, but I guess everybody helped to pack down the trails. No soft snow, no post-holing. Very cold but mostly sunny with manageable wind. A little over 7 hours for 9.6 miles and 4,300 ft of elevation gain overall. Great day!
