Route: Summit Trail, ski trails

Lower half of the trail was generally snow free with a dusting in the woods. Upper half of trail had some patchy black ice and blue ice, as well as a dusting of snow. I didn't put on my light traction, but some may want it. Ski area is not yet open, but they're making quite a lot of snow right now.
