Comments
Comments: Used snowshoes end to end. Saw all manner of traction, including skis and a few sleds. A-Z trail firmly packed to ridge line. Loose along the ridge but stay on the monorail. One in our team without snowshoes went chest deep in a spruce trap looking for a lunch spot. A few tight squeezes to let some large groups go by. A veritable party atmosphere up top with plenty of good spirited traffic, blue skies, and no wind. Saw the requisite gray jays and even a pine marten on top of Field. I suspect this was not his/her first appearance based on its relative friendliness. Nonetheless, an appreciative crowd formed. Opted not to descend the Willey Ridge Trail due to reports of steepness and ice on the ladders. Instead, the afternoon sun on Mount Avalon stole the finale, along with an amazing and unexpected butt slide down. A great day for all!
