Wednesday, 03/24/10 Green Mountain

Homie joined me for a trudge up Green Mountain in the ~2 feet of fresh snow we got last night. There was one set of footprints to follow to the top via Amphi/Saddle/Greenman (actually two, but #2 walked in the tracks of the first), I am guessing it was Kraig and/or Tony. They were up only tracks and they were somewhat helpful, but near the top, footing was tricky and there was some post holing going on.

We backtracked the same way and the two of us descending did the trail a lot of good, as descending helps pack the trail more that ascending. Hoping to head out there with snowshoes tomorrow to really pack things down and get it set up for laps on Friday.

Up in an easy/conversational 58
Down in a cautious ~28

  1. I went up Crown Rock to Flag Rd to West Ridge to the top today and then down Ranger Greenman. Breaking trail the whole way. The upper switchbacks of Ranger below the 4-way were heinous with me swimming, wallowing through waist- to chest-deep drifts. Things melted a lot in town today, but I doubt much changed up high.

  2. I ran roads Wednesday, then this morning up Green via Gregory-Ranger and down Greenman-Saddle-Amph. Horrendous conditions, worst of the year for me. The lower trail was icy, set up and uneven footing. The top was still very loose and deep. I think you guys are the only ones who have been up there. I did have fun on the way down cutting switch-backs sliding on my butt.
