Comments
Comments: Started hiking Liberty springs trail at 8:30am and used my snowshoes the entire way to the summit. You can get away without snowshoes and just traction for the first 1.5-2 miles.

About 2.5 miles up Liberty springs trail, there is fresh soft unpacked powder that requires snowshoes all the way to the summit. The summit had some ice but I was fine with my snowshoes. A lot of people were creating postholes, especially at the higher summit by not using snowshoes and just boots or some with microspikes. On the way down the weather got warmer and spring snow was starting to appear. I took off my snowshoes for the last 2 miles and was fine. Please be adviced it is still winter in the whites and snowshoes are a blessing in disguise.
