Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: North Twin Trail is broken out to the Fire wardens trail, From that point on, it had been previously broken out from the weekend. Around 3 inches of fresh powder on top of track, which increased in elevation. One set of previously made bare boot track descending from North Twin and from South Twin made it tedious for snowshoeing without ankle twisting for the lead trail breakers, but perseverance resulted in obtaining a new and smoother track. Some drifting with significant new snow between the peaks. Trail is well broken by 10 people today, but more snow is in the forecast. "Barebooters Stay off the mountains,or make your own trail."
Gale River trail was well packed for descending. Always a Great day to be out and enjoy the snow.
