Chris, did you get a chance to see how things looked in the Moraine? Snowshoes needed though the willows? Thanks!

There were a few places immediately above treeline that we did need snowshoes, though we were also the only ones that went up by the summer trail. If you take the winter trail just before Alpine Brook you can get up to the Battle Mtn site without needing snowshoes. Beyond that, Id guess the drifts get smaller the closer you get to Chasm Junction and beyond. Boots should probably get you to at least the Boulderfield alright, if not the bottom of the Cables.
