Follow up:

After seeing the weather report showing sustained winds of 10-20, gusts up to 30, and lows around zero, I decided to bail on the Noonmark plan. Considering that it was my first winter...

While we're on the topic, I take it that Microspikes is sorta like Kleenex or Xerox, right? A brand name that became very popular and got applied to a group of similar products. Is that correct?

Great. Just when I thought I had all the gear I needed, I found out there's something new to pine over :)

Are you referring to the exposed rise to the east of Twin Pond, at (44.1210, -73.7285)? I added a gps tag for that, as well as the rise north of Round Pond at (44.1271, -73.7336). Both look like...

Thanks again for all the beta, that's enough to base a few trips off of!

Dix is definitely in the mix. Coming in from Elk Lake is feasible, but if the weather turns or it turns or the trail is...

I was thinking of taking that way in as well, but figured there was no chance it'd be broken or that I'd run into anyone else, except on the summits. I hadn't read any trip reports of people going...

Thanks for the detailed info Neil!

I'm definitely committed to camping, the summits are just something to do while I'm out there. Camping in the snow is quite taxing (I'm usually ready to head...

Thanks for the response!

1. I know it's not really necessary, but I haven't got a chance to use my skis this year, so I'm taking the opportunity. Plus the road back to the lot is net downhill...

I’m planning a solo two night camping trip in the Dacks in the next few weeks, and I wanted to throw it up here to see if anyone had good info. I’ve done a handful of 2-3 night winter trips in the...

Stripper Guy - Agreed! Not sure if I'll ever get the chance, but I'd love to try again in the summer. The woods were nice and open and I'd expect it'd be an easy bushwhack without all that snow. ...

Well, to be fair, I didn't ask for the skis, I just got them. I certainly wouldn't have spent that much on something I use so infrequently.

I figured the sled pulling on your back would...

We thought about sleds, but (correct me if I'm wrong) you can't really use those with skis. I got skis last year for Xmas, and living in DC, this annual trip is my one chance each year to put them...

Mine are Fischer Jupiter Control - they're made for groomed trails, not backcountry.
My buddy had some rentals, pretty sure they were backcountry, definitely had a metal edge.

Can't say if his...

Yeah I don't blame the rangers at all. I've encountered so many idiots hiking with improper gear on no maps, I can't imagine what they deal with on a day to day basis.

We'll both have snowshoes for sure. I know the other approach would be easier, but this one looks like more fun. We've got a whole day to kill, assuming the weather's good. If conditions are...

Winter Bushwhack up St. Regis Mt.

I've always been annoyed that there isn't a trail to the summit of St. Regis Mt. from St. Regis Pond or any of the other ponds south of the peak. I'm sure there are perfectly logical reasons for...
