Comments: We wore snowshoes car to car. Saw people wearing every type of traction as well as skis. Monroe wasn’t too icy. The Washington snowfield, however, was pretty icy. We were fine in snowshoes going up it, but if I were descending it I would want crampons. Met a group on Washington who were doing a traverse, so things are broken all the way. Also met and saw people up on Clay, so that should be fully broken, too. We descended the Cog. Above Jacob’s Ladder was pretty icy, below it was nice snow. Plenty of skiers on this section, descending mostly on the left side of the Cog. Snow was softening up and beginning to bot at the end of the hike as the temperature was a balmy 40° at Waumbek Station!
