Ascent Trip Report

Whiteface from the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center- Up Marble Mountain, past Lookout Mountain ski center along Wilmington Trail. Went down the Stairway Ridge Trail to the castle, then took the Veterans' Memorial Highway for a short time to catch the Wilmington Trail back.

Trail was nicely packed with a little powder. Easily managed with snowshoes. It was a bit messier upon descent, as not everyone was wearing snowshoes and should have been.
