Comments
Comments: Aside from some minor ice on the summit ledges and the steep middle section of the Winslow Trail, the trails and road walk were nicely packed down. Snowshoes stayed on the pack and light traction was the way to go. Much better trail conditions after the recent snow- last week when I was here, there was so much ice that crampons wouldn't have been overkill on some sections.
