Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a Nalgene in an insulated cover that also had a pair of eyeglasses and some energy gels in the outer pocked on the descent from Wildcat A. Left it at the 19MB kiosk.  
Comments: Snowshoes to go up the ski slopes, per regulations. The four of us kept them on until the junction of 19MB. Spikes would have worked on the ridge, but snowshoes were the best choice for descending into Carter Notch from Wildcat A. The steeps on Wildcat A were mostly a few inches of soft snow (some areas of deeper drifting). No evidence of butt sledding, which made for fairly grippy conditions. It was warming up and the snow was botting on the snowshoes on the descent from A. 19MB was very fast going and no botting occurred. Two of us wore snowshoes to the car mostly because we couldn’t be bothered to change out. One of us went briefly to bare boots and then donned spikes at the junction, and another had complete failure of his snowshoe foot plate on the way out and switched over to spikes.
