Comments
Comments: At lower elevations PBB was a beautiful snowshoe track with about 3” of newer snow on top. We wore snowshoes trailhead to trailhead. Snowshoe track diverged from official trail here and there but gets you to the same place eventually. The elusive lefthand turn was as elusive as ever (snowshoe track was blown in), but the two guys ahead of us managed to find it.

On the ridge, lots of branches in face as expected. A bit more diverging from the real trail here and there...

SBT was a mostly well broken snowshoe track although in the upper part the beaten track is off trail for a bit. The steeps were a mix of glissading and butt sliding. Remaining 4 miles was a lovely snowshoe track out. Snow was getting a bit sticky in the bright sun but wasn’t too bad. Thanks to those who broke out SBT - no small feat.

Saw only 3 other hikers and 2 skiers today!!
