After work run partway up Mt Rowe from Gilford Elementary. Plan had been to do the loop - up the Blue Trail, Orange over to Purple and down. Plan changed as it became apparent the western facing hillside (not southwest as I thought) still had some significant snow on it, even thought it was snowshoe/boot packed. Quite a slog as it had warmed up enough to be soft with slush underneath in many spots. Sun was starting to go down and I wasn't keen on finishing up in the dark.
Made it up to the wine tables, took a couple pictures, then headed back down. Took the Yellow trail shortcut straight down for the first bit, then the lower Blue trail - about 32 minutes up, 14 minutes down. Should have gone back along the longer upper portion of the Blue trail - less straight-down nerve wracking on soft mush over variable ice.

Fun session over at Gunstock - forgot my Garmin, so distance and time/zones estimated.
They'd regroomed most of the trails overnight and they were in great shape overall. Some thin spots developing, but plenty of awesomeness still out there. Went on a couple of trails that hadn't been redone overnight - more icy and chunky - and these had more thin spots.
Skied a bit with Jeff P - left me gasping and eating dust - something to be said for being in shape.
