It's a beautiful, snowy morning up top. The high yesterday reached 16 degrees. The overnight low was 4 degrees. It was 15 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received a trace of snow yesterday, the liquid equivalent amounting to .06 inches. There is still 2 inches of snow on the ground. The trails are in good shape, but I would recommend Microspikes if you intend to reach the summit. There are some slick patches and it is slow going with bare boots on the snow. It sounds like it is going to warm up this afternoon, so the trails will have some sloppy melt going on. Get out and enjoy the wintry scenes!
