I descended Carriage to Snapper to Gorge Brook. Trail was too narrow for my skill level, I would rate it difficult. Great snow though!

Breezy point Parking lot is moved down the road 1/2 mile. First mile or so has plenty of blowdown and creek crossings. Conditions good above that. 11mi

Trail had thin coverage for the first mile. Gets interesting from the camp misery bridge. Trail was a blast, narrow for a snowboard, but fun as heck! 10.5mi — 4h 00m

Awesome! Coverage above the tree line was extremely wind-blown and thin, so watch out for rocks. Good layer of ice as a base beneath fresh snow. 10.2mi — 4h 30m
