Comments
Comments: Zealand Road frozen and crusted mostly - spike were fine. Zealand Trail soft in some spots frozen in others - spikes or snowshoes. Above the hut is all snowshoes. Twinway to Guyot is somewhat consolidated, but not well enough for bare booting. Lots of folks heading to the Bonds today. Twinway from Guyot to South Twin was tracked by a few people, but still mostly unconsolidated powder a few inches deep. There are a few meandering and diverging tracks, but all lead to the same place. North Twin spur was well tracked and in good shape. North Twin Trail wasn't broken after the recent snow (as of 1 pm today), but the track was visible and should be easy to follow. Frost Trail and Gale Rover Trail were in good condition and well tracked. Snowshoes are needed above about 2500 feet.
Great views from Zealand to the Bonds and Twins- the snowpack rally helps. Another great Saturday with little wind and bluebird skies.
