The Green Trail on Piper Mountain
Route: Piper Mountain Trail, green blazed trail, (Piper Mountain), green blazed trail, bushwhack, (Piper Mountain), green blazed trail, Piper Mountain Trail
Maybe 5-8" of powder, generally on the lower end of that range. Very little base underneath that. I wore snowshoes roundtrip in part to do a bushwhack to some ledges up top for the sunset, but otherwise one could boot up to Piper (perhaps with light traction). A little boney in places.
Carriage Road is packed out by snowmobiles. Gunstock Mountain Trail looks to be broken out for snowshoe use.

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. Look for Carriage Road on your left. There is a small parking lot just before the gate. Trailhead is down the road a bit, on the right after a small bridge.
