Route: East Rattlesnake Trail, (East Rattlesnake), East Rattlesnake Trail, Ridge Trail, Col Trail

Barebooting was fine for East Rattlesnake and Ridge Trail and probably the Pasture Trail as well - trails had been previously barebooted and the footbeds aren't wide enough for snowshoes. Col Trail probably could have warranted snowshoes, but when in Rome... Overall, maybe a foot of snowpack with a crust on top.
