Comments
Comments: Snowshoes all day. Was tempted to put on spikes. Trails in fantastic shape for shoeing, well packed down until Carter Moriah Trail. I saw no drifting whatsoever, lite winds today. Higher winds will change that. Carter Moriah is a little looser with several post holes. Snowshoes are a must until North Carter Trail. Trail is a little hard to follow on the open ledges but is solid. Snow depths make North Carter a treat with your head in the branches all the way to the Imp junction. Joe Dodge cut-off is broken out & easy to follow. Lite snow cloudy all day, hardly any wind. Only views were from the outlooks on both Middle & South. Clear views of the Wild River Wilderness. Beautiful view of Mt. Hight & Carter Dome as well. Mt Hight is broken out on both ends. Didn't head up as I wanted to be down before dark. Uses snow shoes to keep trail in great condition.
