We met at 8:30 at the Underhill Center commuter lot and took three cars up to the Stevensville Road trailhead. It was overcast and in the high 20s as we started up the Nebraska Notch trail a little before 9 AM. The trail was well packed, and most folks wore microspikes, but when we reached the LT junction around 9:45, the LT was unbroken and we all switched to snowshoes. This choice seemed questionable for a while, as the trail was bare or only thinly covered in many spots, but by the time we reached the Twin Brooks tenting area around 11 AM the snow was deepening enough to make snowshoes useful, if not essential. We reached Butler Lodge around 12:20. No one felt like removing snowshoes, so we didn’t go in, but hung around outside for 15 or 20 minutes and had our lunch. We then headed down Butler Lodge trail, which was also well packed, but most kept snowshoes on at least most of the way down. We reached the cars around 1:45. Participants: Julie Cimonetti, Liana Edwards, Dave Seissen, Jonna Tufts, Susan Tobin, David Hathaway (leader).
