Comments: North twin trail was a well packed highway, the bushwack was established to by-pass the first two river crossing, and the third was snow bridge and stable. Snowshoes went on at the 3rd crossing, and stayed on for the duration. North Twin Spur and Twinway to ST in need of snowshoe TLC, smoothed out what we could but it will take more than 2 pairs of snow shoes, snow drifts with unconsolidated several inches.
Butt sled down south twin’s .8 steep section, packed down the trail and saved our knees, win-win.
Gale River trail was also a snow packed highway.
Blue bird day, full moon, no wind and stunning views, hoping for similar conditions to hit the bonds!
