Comments
Comments: Lots of running water 19mb trail and carter dome trail. All 3 trails were fairly packed where water wasn't running just beware of ice under new snow was slippery today. Ascent to Dome was slippery as well but doable in microspikes. There was heavy drifting in spots up to Carter Dome as well as to Mt Hight.As of late this afternoon there was approximately 2.5 inches new powder at upper elevations and maybe a half inch down low. I used microspikes only today and the snowshoes and crampons came along for the ride.
