|Lost and Found:
||Trail conditions were pretty excellent. Parked across from the closed gate of Gale River Road (the western entrance). Headed up a packed hard snow road, the snowmobile trail to the right could be taken as well to save some impact. Spikes/snowshoes will definitely be needed the entire way.|
Gale River trail was in perfect condition, minus the low branches (regular branches, high trail). Made good time to the hut. It was a brisk day but the sun in the opening was warming us up. Twinway to S.Twin was a bit smoother from people sledding down. Makes it a bit of a 3 steps up, 1 slide down kind of push but still easily manageable with spikes.
N.Twin spur was a little less packed down, with some more sliding, but still VERY manageable with minimal gear. Overall a great time of year to be on this trail, at least until the next snow/rain!
