Comments
Comments: Well first day of winter hike it was. Not too cold out. We started later than normal but took our time up. There were a decent amount of people out. We heard by many that sabbaday was not broken but we were going to attempt it as breaking trail wasn't going to be terrible. We spiked to the mt tri trail junction just to avoid the slip in step and not having to carry them anymore. We got over to sabbaday and noticed a barebooter has gone down it (at least maybe 2 people). There was lots of ice under the snow on the steep sections. Once we got down into the ravine us 3 with snowshoes were smoothing out the bareboot mess that would make a mess in a day or so. There is still a lot of open water which made for balling up under the snowshoe once we hit water with them. I noticed that the bareboots went up and back the same route. I am not sure how they did not get wet on the crossings without any spikes but we didn't find anyone in front of us. We used our headlamps and crossed those crossings in the dark but were still fine. All in all a good day.
