Straightforward day checking off two more of the Winter NE 67 (9 left). Ski trails did have some ice, but there was a good amount of solid drifts and/or short vegetation to help with traction. Up on the ridge, though, lots and lots of ice; it was really more necessary to wear crampons, or the half-version (K-10s/Hillsounds). My two friends used crampons and had a much easier time with the ice, but my snowshoes allowed me to glide over the snow drifts among the trees more easily. Bring both along for the foreseeable future.
