Comments: Fine day, much sunshine and no wind on these trails. First segement on ski trails and a few miles with patchy ice and wet ground. About 1/3 way in trails were very good with solid crust. Microspikes good for our party. Bench at hut was the treat of the day-warm sun, no wind--snooze worthy! Some late season miles to the peak for another fine day.
