Comments: What a beaut of a day! I went on my friend Jill Lamond's GRID FINISH! The trails were surprisingly stable considering the 80 degree weather we've been having the past few days! The normal steep spots just take care when descending. One in our group was wearing snowshoes on the ascent for the "high heel" lift...but they weren't necessary. Probably helpful from here on out until the snow melts. Spikes were the choice of everyone in our group-a few people did posthole but that's if you get off the narrow stable monorail. I didn't even posthole once! It was soft in spots before you climb up the rocks-due to the warm sun shining. If you have snowshoes on you'll probably get annoyed and take them off when you get to the rocks.

p.s. if you need sunscreen I'm your girl lol
