||Overall trails are soft but packed.. Conditions vary from beautiful snowshoe track to rototilled soft snow to hip deep postholes to crap transition season half-streambed. I wore Snowshoes all day, though probably unnecessary on 19mb below the junction with Carter Dome Trail. Couple inches of snow last night/today, and warmer temps coming...recommend snowshoes for the majority of these trails to help pack things down. |
Only 1-2 intrepid bare booters had done the section between Carter Dome summit and Notch...I can’t imagine they had fun considering the depth of their postholes. My one descending snowshoe track is there but hopefully an army of snowshoers goes thru this week to smooth it out.
