Icy trail starting at elevation 2600', and full snow cover above 3000'.

Snowshoes worked great, especially the blue ones .

On the western slopes, going toward Ste Annes, there was occasional patches of snow and very little ice. Later that day I did North Dome and Sherrill, both have maybe a foot deep snow patches near the summits but I decide to leave the snowshoes on my back. I found the ridge walk down toward rte 42 very pretty. Great traverse overall, 8,5h... Not bad for a rainy day.
