8AM BHP Chickadee, Esker, Bluestem West, and Aspen. Temp was -18.. the freeze thaw is starting to take it’s toll… conditions vary from ice to hard pack with good kick still. Chickadee is probably in the worst shape of the bunch. Several icy patches early going… occasional patches of twigs/branches under the tracks, especially on Chickadee. Apparently the hikers have claimed the ski trails.. they are loaded with footprints.
