Comments
Comments: Trail partially broken out but snow from last night eventually obliterated it at about 3500 feet. 3 of us on snowshoes have opened it up, however we lost the trail before the final ascent to above tree line on N. Twin trail. Eventually found a way back to the trail proper. When approaching the top, go straight up the steep hill and up onto the open shoulder with great views to the North and East. Don't take the trails to the right or left. Go straight up and you'll get there. When we reached the Summit of N. Twin, the N. Twin spur trail had been broken out by a lone hiker. We could see him on S. Twin. Trail here, at noon, had very sticky heavy snow and coupled with drooping boughs and melting snow made for a less than wonderful slog to S. Twin. We were soaked. Great coming off of S. Twin to the hut with soft, wet snow. Frost trail was broken out by the same lone hiker and now packed out pretty well. Hike down was a piece of cake.
