Comments
Comments: Wore snowshoes the entire hike from the beginning of the ski trail out and back. Definitely my preferred traction for this type of hike. Saw many people out on the trails today, most did the ski trails as an out and back and most carried or wore snowshoes. Only a few postholes the whole way across the Ridge, likely from people stepping aside to let others pass. Ski trail was slushy coming down in the afternoon after a sunny and warm morning. Awesome day with stunning views of the Northern Presidentials!
