Comments
Comments: Microspikes from trailhead to start of Galehead River where I switched to snowshoes - you could go spikes all the way to the hut and the summit. Ridge Trail is barely tracked; deep powder on top of a stable monorail, but exhausting work. Microspikes all the way on Garfield Mt Trail. Link/shortcut back to Beaver not tracked at all, so went the long way on the snowmobile trails.
