Comments
Comments: Beautiful cloudless day with many views, some deep into Vermont. Used Hill Sound spikes for the whole route except the road walk. About 1/2" of new snow fell overnight and easily managed with spikes. Gorge Brook is well packed and the summit trails that were exposed were all iced over. Quite an amazing sight. There was no wind except a stiff 15-20 mph on the summit. The trail to South Peak was also well packed and there was a minor breeze on the peak - very comfortable. Carriage Road was in good shape across the ridge but started to get soft as we descended. Some old post holes that were covered with the new snow were revealed/stepped in from time to time. Snapper was beginning to soften higher up but was hard down below. 23 degrees at 7:15 start, 47 degrees at 12:30 finish.
