Comments
Comments: Was able to bareboot on the 19 MBT to the Carter Dome Trail, where I donned snowshoes, wearing them up to Zeta Pass, north to Middle Carter, and then all the way back to the trailhead. There was a good snowshoe track for the entire route. One showshoeing hiker was continuing to the North Carter Trail and down via that trail and the Imp Trail (south branch). If the forecast is accurate, things will be different 24 hours from now.
