Comments
Comments: Big thanks to Tom, Eric, and Michael, who broke out Blueberry Ledge Trail yesterday such that our hard trail breaking was limited to just the 0.2 mile from Kate Sleeper Trail to the recognized high point of Mt. Whiteface, which FP needed for his January Grid. Past Whiteface, Rollins is unbroken. Prepare for a workout.

Ledges were fine with just snowshoes this day.

There were two others out there today (one to East Sleeper, the other to the lower but more scenic summit of Whiteface), but the track is still not totally firm. The snowshoe track is beautiful right now; please help keep it that way. Thank you!
