The drifted road near the summit Fort Mountain
Route: Access road, (Fort Mountain), access road
Plowed access road had drifted in significantly, but was barebootable on a set of snowmobile tracks. Looks like they were getting ready to plow it again after sunset this evening. Off the road, snow is knee deep, so snowshoes would be a must. Overall, this route provides about 650 vertical feet over the course of one mile.
