The Crawford Ridgepole Trail
The Crawford Ridgepole Trail

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

Old Mountain Road was initially snowmobiled, but it looks like they got stuck and had to turn around. Apart from that, Old Mountain Road was frozen but soft and required snowshoes. Some Rhodes Scholar barebooted up in the soft powder yesterday, resulting in frozen foot deep postholes. On behalf of my sore ankles, thank you. Crawford Ridgepole was snowmobiled yesterday after the barebooter (snowmobiles ascended from the Route 113 side). While on the plus side the tracks filled in the postholes, the downside was that the summit viewpoint area got ripped up (they tore up the soil trying to turnaround).

Snowshoe tracks headed toward Webster and bareboot tracks headed toward Cotton.

Overall, there was generally 1 to 2 feet of snowpack. Old Mountain Road may get slushy/wet pretty soon though.
