Comments: Snowshoes trailhead to trailhead, took them off for the short road walk back to Nineteen Mile.
Glad to have them. 4-6 inches of unbroken fresh fluffy stuff up high with some deeper drifts from an unexpected snowstorm early this morning. All trails had a nice solid base underneath except the trail going up and down Hight, and the Imp Trail were both postholed AF and the new snow made it tricky to see them at times. Postholed enough to trip you with snowshoes and make the ride downhill uncomfortable. Imp trail in particular is still pretty soft. It needs a lot more snowshoe love. If you don’t like wearing snowshoes, get better ones. My friend and I cruised in our Dions today and my bitch finished her 11th round of the NH48!
