||Snow - Packed Powder/Loose Granular, Snow - Unpacked Powder, Snow - Drifts |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||All bridged |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Several leaners/duck unders on the Willey Range between Field and Willey and also on the Tom Spur. One duck under between Field and Tom. A few more heading down A-Z. All are small enough diameter to be cleared with a hand saw. Avalon Trail has a climb under on the steep area before the Avalon summit…butt sledders beware, you could probably clear it, but maybe not. |
|Lost and Found:
||Snowshoes are the best choice currently. Below the split for Avalon/A-Z is packed well and spikes would suffice, but above there the trail is pretty soft with considerable drifting. Most were in snowshoes today. |
Note to sledders: there is a blowdown at the bottom of a steep area below Avalon. It’s currently a duck/crawl under so you might make it under if you’re sledding, but you might get hung up on it.
