Comments
Comments: Tons of snow and post holing was crazy just off trail. Meaning anything more than 10 inches off the middle of the trail. But the snow was so packed from other hikers that I never needed snow shoes. I saw several people with snow shoes. No one was wearing them. It was, however, definitely important to have micro spikes. I don't really see anyone making it up this trail safely without them.
