Comments: The trails were beautiful from the car up to Zeta Pass and traffic was really light (ran into only one group out there today). At Zeta Pass, I switched into snowshoes to head over to Carter Dome. Everyone who had been up had done a great job smoothing out the trail and it was in nice shape. But, given that it was blowing, I am sure that it will drift over again in the usual spots ...

Carter-Moriah over to South and Middle were a different situation. Carter-Moriah has seen very little traffic and it looks like the only traffic was bareboots. It is messy ... I tried to wear snowshoes to smooth it out. But, it was impossible. I finally took them off and used microspikes. Even though the snow is messy there, it is pretty firm and I did not sink in or make the situation any worse. Hopefully it will snow soon and with softer powder on top people can really get after this section ...
