Comments: Arrived extremely early prepared for heavy social distancing and ended up being solo. Started with virtually no snow pack with icy spots used micros only until Twinway which appeared to have a single pair of tracks/postholes. At this point shoes went on for the duration of hike until back below snow line. The North Twin spur was not broke out and had varying amounts of snow between four and 12 inches with light drifts. North twin trail didnt appear to be broken out either, although when driving by the end of Haystack road there were several cars parked. Frost trail was partially broken with much less snow.
