Comments
Comments: I put on spikes just after the first Crawford brook crossing and kept them on until I got there again. A few times I could have used the snowshoes (I did bring them) on Willey as the sun-warned monorail was deteriorating, but managed in spikes without post-holing. Stable on Willey Ridge Trail and Tom Spur, though it was getting a slushy layer on top by mid-afternoon. Descending A-Z trail was a controlled slide, making the descent a bit more difficult, but manageable. A great day to be on snow, in a T-Shirt no bugs and great views!
