Comments
Comments: Surprisingly little snow; Horton Ctr Road has fresh wheel tracks on less than an inch of powder, and there were decent prints to follow up Pine Mt Trail. A few sketchy icy patches on the ledges and Chapel Rock; microspikes would have made it easier, but they stayed in the pack for the day and we barebooted the whole way. A bit more snow on the Pine Mt Trail loop.
