Date of Hike: 12/23/2008

Trail Conditions: Deep powder, 2 feet deep and deeperwith snowshoes. Trail was unbroken, but is now broken by 5 pairs of snowshoes going out and back. Water crossing was fine due to tree used as a bridge. One blowdown that needs to be squeezed through. Other blowdowns not an issue.

Special Equipment Required: Snowshoes - essential. Snow is still light and powdery so trail is not quite a sidewalk, but now a lot easier. Crampons or light traction would be of no use.

Comments: Optional - Took 5 of us 6 hours to reach summit. Tough trail breaking the whole way, but acted as a team and persevered. Now get out there a make use of our hard work.
