Comments
Comments: Trail had been broken out earlier in the week. But at least one hiker post holed their way up and significantly damaged the monorail. By the time we came down enough snowshoes had packed in the holes. Recommend snow shoes from the stream to the summit. Snow is not hard and is drifting on the ridge.
