Comments: Snow didn't really show up until the intersection of the Gale River and Garfield Ridge Trails - maybe one very short piece of monorail beforehand. Patchy monorail from there to the top of Galehead, but no need for spikes at this point. The temperature at the hut at 11:00 AM was about 38 DegrF, so the snow will not be going anywhere today, but after one solid 60 Degr Day at elevation, you will probably need to look hard to find any left. Saw a total of about 20 people on the trail today, but only one happy looking dog.
