Comments
Comments: still lots of snow in the wooded areas around Bond to South Twin, mostly stable monorail, but also lots of unstable monorail and some postholing to knees. Expect to be delayed on these trails. The other trails with significant monorail and snow pack are from Little Haystack to Flume, but this was better packed; no postholing.
Summits and ridgelines were all clear
lots of mud and slush throughout
It's been warm enough that the trail was mostly snowpack, not icy - there was no ice that we couldn't easily get around, and we never put on our microspikes. HOWEVER, if there is a freezing night there are likely to be many dangerously icy sections, and in such a case, I would certainly advise to bring microspikes.
