The Crawford Ridgepole Trail
Route: Old Mountain Road, Crawford-Ridgepole Trail, (Mt. Livermore), Crawford-Ridgepole Trail, Old Mountain Road
Old Mountain Road had a single set of ski trails ascending it (and part of Crawford Ridgepole Trail). Otherwise, a few inches of drifted powder on top of previous footbed. Snowshoes or skis needed.
Crawford Ridgepole was heavily drifted, ranging from areas of slight monorail adjacent to wind scoured ground to drifts around five feet deep. Drifts tended to be firm enough to support snowshoes.
Chilly start at -5F, but with the winds finally subsiding, it seemed almost tropical.
