Looking down the Piper-Whiteface Link
Route: Whiteface Mountain Trail, Piper-Whiteface Link
From the stonewall, I broke up to the ridge and to the summit, generally in three to ten inches of new powder (usually around 6-8 inches) with base depths probably around two feet. No sign of any recent traffic from the north. My tracks should set up okay in the sunny ledgy areas.
I also meandered around the southern ledges on the Yellow Trail, which is particularly hard to follow. Looks like a snowmobile was up there recently. Lots of nice ledge views though, even if not on trail.

Directions to trailhead: From Route 11A East (from Route 3), take a right on Hoyt Road. Continue down this road as it becomes Belknap Mountain Road. At the end of this road, take a left. There will eventually be a turnaround area with a private road sign. Park here, and continue up the road on foot. The Piper Whiteface Trail trailhead will be on the left side of the road.
