Comments
Comments: As previously reported, the road is frozen granular but not that slippery. The first .7 from the summer trail head (the trail relocation) is very icy. Scratchy from there up past the river crossings. Snow depth increased and the upper section of the trail is in perfect shape. Light traction, the whole way up and back. Great summit conditions for pictures. Toby enjoyed all of the fresh powder. Thanks Larisa.
