Comments: Fancypants gridded out the Tri’s this day. Even though it is longer, we decided that we definitely prefer the Scaur route out-and-back from Waterville Valley over Pine Bend Brook Trail from the Kanc.

First 1-1.5 miles of Livermore Trail is machine groomed. Next section is not machine groomed but snowshoe tracked and easy. Scaur Trail is a lovely, easy climb to the ridge. Our group of 3 improved the already broken snowshoe track, smoothing it out nicely, although 2 barebooters (carrying snowshoes) followed and did some rototilling and mini postholing. Sigh...

The ridge to Middle Tri is broken out nicely with very minimal ice evident on the steep, scrambly sections. We returned the same way because FP is not a lover of slides. Right now conditions are about as good as I’ve seen for the Tri’s in winter conditions! Snowshoes most of the day. Spikes not needed.
