Comments
Comments: Snowshoes door to door. Some slipping occurred on a few of the steeper sections but the few people we saw with microspikes were postholing. Lots of sliding on the way down. The group ahead of us blazed a woods bypass to the chimney bypass - going up the existing bypass was fine but coming down was a little sketchy to maneuver in snowshoes.
