It's a gorgeous, clear morning up top. The high yesterday reached 18 degrees. The overnight low was 5 degrees. The mountain received no new precipitation yesterday. There is still some patchy snow and ice remaining. The trails are particularly tricky right now. A lot of the snow and ice has melted, but then there are long stretches where Microspikes are essential. I'd prefer to be safe rather than sorry and wore mine the entire hike up Alum yesterday. All it takes is one footfall where there is unexpected black ice and you could have a serious fall far from help. Be careful and enjoy the day! It looks like it'll be a stunner.
