Comments
Comments: 6-10 inches of fresh powdery snow up here. Followed another solo hiker to the top of Gale River trail, took over trail breaking from there around to North Twin. Returned the same way, so there is the start of a lovely soft snowshoe track. Did not go up Galehead - Frost trail is not broken out yet.

Be mindful of water crossings, the ice is fragile but held for now..I’d worry if it gets warmer.. Thin snow cover down low but still definitely recommend snowshoes.
