Comments
Comments: We re-broke trail up to tree line. 4-6” fresh powder with drifts up to knees. Once beyond tree line, wind swept frozen granular. Could easily use spikes beyond this point. We stayed in shoes knowing we would need them on the way down. Plus the few drifts we encountered over to Jeff. Clouds until we were almost on Gulfside, then it cleared with low winds and full sun. Clouds returned on our return trip back to Jewel. Someone skinned up our tracks smoothing it out nicely. It is still super soft, so be kind and take care of our track.
