Comments
Comments: Absolutely gorgeous day in the mountains. We were prepared for the worst with a forecast of bitter wind chill but had many layers that never got pulled out. Use spikes to the Whiteface summit and then switched to snowshoes for Rollins Trail, probably doable with spikes, but the snowshoes saved some significant effort and frustration. The top 1/2 of Dicey's mill was well packed, the bottom had many 4" drifts.
