Good morning, The high yesterday was 28, and a low of -5. It was 2 at observation. It is very windy and gusty at the top. Trails are still very icy. As hiker yesterday reported there are two sections where root balls are in the trail and make it difficult to navigate around. Coming down from the Lodge one is located at the start of the saddle and the other one is just above Alum. The one at Alum is the most difficult. There are about 5 trees between these two areas but they are not bad to get around.
