Comments
Comments: Trail is well packed for the first mile or so. As you ascend, there is more snow and more of it is unconsolidated. Above the junction for Avalon, snowshoes are definitely needed. The is plenty of snow cover so snowshoes can be worn car to car. At places where snow is deep or drifted, there are many deep postholes. Trail is rough and choppy at places because hikers are not wearing snowshoes, especially on Willey Range trail near Field. It would be very easy to sustain a leg injury because the trail is so rough. The weather was gorgeous; the company excellent.

The snow forecast for this week will change the trail conditions very soon.
