I see a lot of reports of nice fluffy snow concealing ice. I was thinking of going snowshoeing this weekend (Jan 28-9). I don't have crampons or an axe.
Is there anyplace you think may be snowshoe-able this weekend in NH or perhaps MA-midstate trail?
I've been looking at a few trail reports. I'll continue to look at the NOAA maps. Of course the NOAA map doesn't distinguish between 4 inches of ice with 3 inches of snow on top vs. 7 inches of snow.

I know the mount washington area got about 8 inches last night - thats what the summit got I think - so not sure about lower elevations. I would think you could shoe on some of the lower trails that branch off tuckerman ravine trail - great gulf might be an option as well.
