Comments: Carried snowshoes but did not use them. Trails are mostly frozen consolidated snow with, down low, stretches of bare ground. In a couple short stretches they would have been helpful especially from the top of the steeps on the N. Twin trail to the summit. Too cold and windy on the ridge to stop and mess with them. N. Twin trail has not seen much traffic consequently it is not as well consolidated as the others. The pleasant surprise was the Twinway. Very little hard ice, rocks essentially all buried. I usually need an hour to get down this trail. Today half that or less.
Thank you Bill C. for a fine day!
