Date of Hike:3/20/11

Trail Conditions: Plenty of snow coverage on North Twin and Fire Warden. Some post holes indicate that barebooters need to stick to the packed trail center. Fire Warden is well broken out, with multiple skin-tracks.

Special Equipment Required: Snowshoes/Skis - useful. Traction for the steeper parts of Fire Warden would be recommended.

Comments: We skinned from 7 Dwarves, and up Mt. Hale. On the way down, there was plenty of snow to ski the birch glades. Snow surface was predominantly edge-able crust. which could support a skier, but not a bare-booter.
