Comments
Comments: Thank you to all the people who packed the trail. The trail is nicely packed and in great shape. On the slide, "snow steps" are already made, it really helps to go up.
Started with microspikes then switched to crampons to make it easy.

We saw 3 people going down the slide with microspikes. That did not sound fun...

We first went to flume then liberty. On the way down liberty spring trail, snow got sticky and became mashed potatoes. I believe the slide may turn into ice next time the weather turn bellow freezing temperature
