Trail: Killington via Sherburne Pass and Long Trail|
Date Hiked: 4/7/07
Conditions: Trail to Pico Camp was broke out but was an untouched 10-12" of powder from there until junction with Bucklin. The usual few blowdowns to deal with.
Special Required Equipment: Snowshoes recommended but bareboot OK on cold days. Postholing will definitely be an issue as the large base thaws. Final approach to the top as always an ice floe.
Comments: January conditions in April...trail was obscured by skier and snowboarder efforts near the ski areas which made for some whacking efforts, we were off trail many times. All in all a fun day in VT with UFC. Limited views due to low clouds and flurries.
