Comments
Comments: Valley Way is heavily barebooted but snow was falling consistently through the day, so if you go bring snowshoes and help get it back into shape. Anything above tree line was frozen and we traveled in straight lines over the frozen snow up and down Madison and Adams. Saw 3 people on Valley Way and 3 people descending Airline from the slopes of Madison.
