Comments: Blue skis, moderate temps. A beautiful day out!

Trails are in good shape overall. We carried snowshoes and microspikes, but wound up bare-booting the entire hike.

The lower mountain and south-facing slopes were a bit soft, especially towards the end of the day. The Rollins traverse is quite overgrown in places, with lots of branches at head-waist level. One of our party had shed his shell and got fairly soaked.

We had a bit of a late start so didn't attempt to summit Passaconaway. But, Dicey Mill Trail looked good heading up from the Rollins junction.
