Comments
Comments: The winslow trail consisted of a inch of snow covering thin ice. There was very good footing. I didn't find the need to put on my microspikes on the way up. At the summit, the rock is icy, and there are snow drifts. I didnt bother going up the tower since the summit was in the clouds. The barlow trail had not been broken out yet. I went down the trail a little ways but had trouble finding it, so I went down the winslow trail. I wore microspikes on the way down. There was no need for snowshoes.
