Comments
Comments: Excellent ZBonds Traverse today with a fellow Gridder. Approximately 3-4" at lower elevations increasing to approx a foot+- above the Zealand Hut continuing on until Mt Guyot.Barebooted until 3200 feet and used snowshoes until ascending Bondcliff. From this point we barebooted back to trailhead.Trail was unbroken after Ethan Pond Trail intersection to Bondcliff Trail. Snow was heavy and dense. Followed a bareboot path to West Bond Spur which had seen some snowshoe trafiic as well.
