Comments
Comments: Lots of snowmobiles up and down road walk from gate to trailheads. Went up Winslow and down Barlow. No issue with ice, even on middle steep section of Winslow, though anticipate that will change with any warmer temps and melting top snow. Winslow trail was well-packed and microspikes were sufficient, but snowshoes would have been useful on Barlow as it was not as packed. Summit had avoidable ice and some drifting snow. Gorgeous 360 views at the top although we didn't stay long due to cold/wind.
