|Lost and Found:
||Robie and I started about 7am climbing up the gut of the ski area just to the right of the main chair. Ski Trails were easy to climb today. |
From the viewing tower to 19 mile brook trail was not broken out but is now. We donned snowshoes and wore all the way. Snow was significant 6-12 inches and drifting in places. Uphills were loose and downhills were fast. We stopped in the hut, changed and refueled.
19 mile brook trail and Carter Dome Trail were well broken out to the top of Carter Dome. Only one person had been up from Zeta Pass as we started down but we passed two groups on the way. No one had been out to Mt Hight.
Carter-Moriah Trail was well tracked out. When we reached the top of South Carter there was one hiker (Mark Godin) coming back from Middle Carter who said the trail was on tracked beyond that point. We decided to break out the rest of the trail and come down Imp all of which is broken out now snow amounts were 10 inches plus in here. North Carter Trail is not broken out.
Good day and had to work for everything today.
