The Crawford-Ridgepole Trail

Route: Old Mountain Road, Crawford-Ridgepole Trail, (Mt. Livermore), Crawford-Ridgepole Trail, Old Mountain Road

Trails were generally packed powder. About an inch or so net of new snow from yesterday with a very, very slight crust on top. Surprisingly minimal base - maybe a foot on Old Mountain Road and then closer to 6" on the ridge. By the looks of it, this was due to the westerly winds...there were western drifts wherever there was an object. So, I suspect the 2 feet or so we picked up over the weekend is deposited on the east side of the ridge.

I wore snowshoes, but for this route, I suspect one could get away with bare boots (as others have), though light traction might help with some hidden, underlying ice.
