Route & General Observations

Went up Snug Harbor trail. The trail was in decent condition with some small open creeks on the trail. Creek Below Vmax was open. The upper pass was pretty windblown but after that, the snow was 3-4ft, and good conditions in the trees. No avalanches were observed but the higher elevations were very windblown.
