Comments
Comments: Did a loop beginning at 19 Mile and ending at Dodge cut off. I seemed to be the only one that decided to go up Carter Moriah rather than Carter Dome Trail. Three people where ahead of me but turned back after maybe 250 yards so the pleasure of breaking out that steep and deep trail was to be mine. Snow was consistently at least a foot deep and 2ā€™ in places. The very steep sections required a lot of effort. Once to Dome summit the trail was broken out heading north. Some sketchy side hill here and there. After Middle, the track looked to be only made by one or two snowshoers. Very deep snow in that area, covering the lower trail sign at the North Carter trail junction. Lots of branches in the face. I broke out the dodge cut off though the trough was fairly easy to spot, much less snow at lower elevation. Snowshoes essential, Iā€™m not sure even the most dedicated post holer could make it up Carter Moriah.
