Lost and Found: Found a black neck warmer on Carter Dome trail 
Comments: Wow! There was lot more snow up high than I expected. Yesterday I did Tom/Field/Willey and they didn't have nearly as much snow. Carter Dome had a 6' drift at the summit that I had to break out. Luckily others were on the trail and did most of the other work. It wasn't nearly as deep except near the summit of Carter Dome. Most of the rest of the ridge had 4 to 6" of new or blown snow. Nineteen Mile brook is well packed and spikes are fine. You might be able to get to Zeta pass without snowshoes but after that you will definitely want them. The trail north of Middle Carter and down North Carter Trail had only been broken by one person so it is very soft. Once you get to Imp trail it changes to a couple inches of crusty snow on top of a packed trail until you get halfway down then it becomes a mix of bare rocks & ice where spikes were best.
