"Steve, Ed and I spent the day playing in some deep snow on and off trail. After a challenging ascent of Fir we pushed on into the deep fluff working our way toward Big Indian. I smartly choose the initial downward leg to break through then let the other two swap out on the ascent, often flattish, until it was my time again for the steep up to the canister. About 5 and a 1/2 hours of work now we are ready to head back via the trail and enjoy some easier ‘shoeing. Uh oh the herd path isn’t broke out so we just wing it and angle down until we see the blue markers of the trail. Now we are pushing " - Big Indian Mountain, Nimblefoot, Mar 15, 2018
"Steve, Ed and I spent the day playing in some deep snow on trail and off. First we had re-break the trail in from the Bisquit Brook PA to the usual jump off point, after the leanto, for Fir. Then we began to follow an old track meandering in an odd direction that eventually got over to the usual route. It saved us some energy we for deeper snow we would find later.

Elizabeth was up next on the trail breaking rotation and put in the longest shift. She eventually relinquished the lead so I broke up the final steep ascent then handed off to Steve once the slope eased up. Back to Elizabeth to find the canister in time for lunch then head down after our sign-ins. Once back to Seager we relocated our cars to Oakley’s for pizza and beer to celebrate Elizabeth’s finish.

"A nice pleasant hike up and over Giant Ledge and on to Panther via a firm packed track speckled with the occasional gopher hole left by a bare-booter. On my way back wandered across the high points of Giant Ledge." - Panther Mountain, Nimblefoot, Mar 12, 2018
"A nice pleasant hike out to Panther mountain traversing Giant Ledge on the way. The snow from recent storms was firm packed by snowshoers with the occasional gopher hole provided by a bare booter. On my way back I went off trail and wandered across the various high points." - Giant Ledge, Nimblefoot, Mar 12, 2018
