Comments: Awesome day testing out the misery slippers on Tom, Field and Willey in that order. It was a little bit of a brute today bc trails weren’t fully broken out, so we wore snowshoes door to door. There were tons of people out there with shoes so you trails are in good shape and should be prime tomorrow. Field to Willey was more of a mess, but we broke it out as good as we could with about 2 other people. It was snowing all day so tracks likely got filled in. We came out Avalon, also well broken out. Snowshoes door to door today. Took longer than expected bc snow was soft and deep. We saw several gentlemen coming up the Willey ladders in bare boots, exhausted. That trail will likely be dangerous tomorrow as it was not previously broken so you may want to avoid it. Trail pics at elizacal on insta
