Comments: First time hiking 19 Mile Brook Trail and winter and boy it is so much better than without snow! No rocks! 19 Mile Brook Trail was hard packed probably all the way to hut but we turned onto Carter Dome at the intersection. Carter Dome trail wasn't packed down as hard but it's definitely broke out. Carter Moriah to the summit was softer and snowshoes would be best in this section. The slope was kind of sketchy so be careful on footing. Mount Hight was not broke out so we reluctantly skipped it. But on descent someone told us they broke it out. It was SO cold and I was a bit tired so we still opted out on Hight as much as I hated to. Had lunch at the Carter Dome intersection of Carter Moriah trail where we were out of the wind and exposed sections. 19 Mile out was a piece of cake.
