Comments: Used spikes on 19 Mile Brook until the junction with Carter Dome as it was packed well and had a few bare spots. Switched to snowshoes at the junction and used these all of the way until about a mile left on the South Imp trail, where the shoes started to bottom out on some rocks. Spikes again for the last mile. The snow depth was 4-8 inches in various spots. The trail was unbroken from Carter Dome until we met a single person near Zeta Pass heading down. From Zeta to the end, there was a single track of shoes as it looked like the two persons ahead of us were following in each other's footsteps. Our group of 8 laid down a pretty good packed trail from Carter Dome Tr through most of South Imp.
