Santanonis: Bring your snowshoes!

My sister, her boys, and I were in there today! Yikes, A LOT of snow. No trace of anyone having been there.
We broke trail to Times Square and on to Couchsachraga (be careful if you try to follow that ! ) You will still need shoes though...The snow is heavy and wet, then crunchy, then bullet proof, then soft and slippery...at least 8-12 inches. I just got home!

My sister will post her usual Fabulous TR but I wanted to give a heads up!

Santanoni range

Hey thanks but 8 hours too late for us. I took my son out there today who needed all three peaks to put him at # 45 Therefore there was no turning back. Thank you for breaking out Couch as we did after finding our way to Panther and we very much appreciated it. It was a very rough go to Santanoni finding trail and post-holing.
Where the hell did all the snow come from? I was out on Marshal, Gray and Skylight last weekend and we hiked the Spine. The Whiteface Weather showed it only snowed 3/4 of an in last this week.

Well thanks for posting but we left our house at 3am 4/14

My trip was on a saturday of memorial day, down to 30 at night which was great for morning to summit couchy, on way back it was a postholing mess even with snowshoes, long day for one peak... that was my first learning curve of the high Peaks..

Oh man, maybe if I head for the Santas this weekend I'll finally get to use the new snowshoes I bought in the fall...
