Ascent Trip ReportWarm day in New Hampshire today (got up to low 40's in Gorham). About 3 feet of snow on the ground at the trailhead working up to about 5 or 6 feet at the peak of Moriah. Crossed Surprise on the way to that. Snowshoes required top to bottom. No ice. Very clear, barely a breeze. Slow going with the snowshoes. Took about 7 hours total (one of my snowshoes broke on the way down, slowing things down slightly). Met a hiker named Dave who looks like he could become a future hiking buddy.
