Lost and Found
Lost and Found: There is a cell phone on the kiosk at the trailhead, still working with battery. It is out of the elements but missing its owner. Also if you lost a pair of traction devices around the winter parking area on the Kanc, email me with a brief description of them and I'll mail them to you. They were on the road, they probably fell off of your car as you drove away. 
Comments: Snow conditions are currently dangerous for butt sledding, the snow is very frozen and packed and the sliding would be dangerously fast. We preferred up walk down in crampons to minimize slip and fall. Microspikes were sufficient for ascending. Snowshoes would be needed on a warmer day, the track is starting to get soft in the afternoon. As of now, postholes are still minimal. The bypass of the chimney is safe but the chimney itself is very iced over.
