Well, maybe I'm speaking only for myself, but I don't hate snowshoers on a ski trail at all. It's the backcountry, I'm not expecting groomed, set tracks. Anybody who packs a nice even trail is...

Along similar lines, it's been a while since I've been on the Klondike Notch trail - was the bridge over South Meadow brook ever replaced? (The one that was only a few hundred yards from the parking...

Just FYI, but when you do ski it, most skiers leave the trail and follow a route marked roughly in red that brings you over to the snow bowl and up to the summit entirely on skis. That last stretch...

Oh yes, every route always has some ups and downs. I guess I'm just trying to avoid the situation where somone claims "this mountain is the hardest to climb, I gained 6,000' of elevation getting...

(This is all just sort of fun musing on a work day, so don't read more into it than that...)

I didn't interpret it that way. My example would be Skylight from Elk Lake vs. Skylight from Tahawus. ...

Hmmm... not sure it's quite the same, but it has a more precise answer. You could go with "hardest-easiest route" to each summit. Meaning, for each of the 46 high peaks, pick the (trailed) route...

But once you start deliberately going over multiple mountains, there's no end to it. Think 10,000' by going to Marcy via the entire Great Range.

If the question is, what single peak has the...

Oh, but if anything should be streamed in real time, it's your bushwhacks. So the rest of us can watch and say "thank God I'm not doing THAT!":)

I've done it a couple of times, but it's been a few years. I went out to Moose Pond first, took the cut-over trail to the west end of Newcomb Lake, and skied across the lake to the camp. Then back...

My understanding is that Saratoga PLAN and DEC are working to restore access to the tower for the public, and work is already underway on the tower. I think the two levels are removed so that it...

True... but I'd like to point out that there's nothing in my pack that's as important as the knowledge and experience I have in my head. I'd rather be 10 miles in without a pack than without that.

It's pretty well defined from Iroquois to Shepherd's Tooth, and for part of the way down to Cold Brook Pass. But if you're coming up from the pass, if it's there at all it's not very obvious. Most...

There's no "trail" to Shepherd's Tooth, not even a continuous path. It's a short bushwhack, but steep and thick. Starts by negotiating a 30' cliff band right out of Cold Brook pass.

If you get...

In and out to Colden Dam via Calamity Brook is a great ski, same mileage and difficulty as going via Avalanche Pass, so if you can ski one you can ski the other. Should be great conditions this...

It really is a great trip. One reason is the variety; open slope skiing in the bowl coming off the summit, tight skiing between forgiving evergreens down to the Plateau, nice wider trail and even...
