Decent packed snow most of the way. It got a bit soft near the summit, but only for a hundred yards or so. If you plan on continuing to Webster from this summit be sure to bring snow shoes. I was sinking past my knees, so I turned back. Spikes are enough to summit Jackson, but snow shoes may have made some parts easier. Almost no wind, and pretty clear at the summit with great views.

More fun than I expected! Hiked on 2/22/21. It was a snowy day with no views but it cleared up a little at the end then it snow stormed again. Going down we butt slided, so much more fun then just hiking down the entire trail. Mount Washington Observatory recorded 78 mph wind gusts this day. Average of 40 but when we were at the summit the gusts weren’t as rough. Completed my 23 4K!

Whatta day! Would 100% recommend snowshoes or micro spikes- I was good with spikes, but many others had snowshoes and looked like they were having an easier time. Summit was windy but beautiful views. Prepare to butt slide down 70% of the trail... so fun!!

HikingGreat!

Hiked yesterday 2-6-21. Saw a combination of people wearing snowshoes and micro spikes. I had micro spikes and had no problem. Good steady climb with the last section a bit steeper. Pretty windy at the top. Was glad I had goggles with me. Lots of people out enjoying the trail. There was a log across the trail on my way up and by the time I was back that way on my decent it had already been cut up. Great trail maintenance!!!

HikingGreat!Snow

Steady climb, strong gain around the last .2 for the summit. Had no problem with micro spikes, although we passed a few parties with snowshoes. Couple new inches of snow made for a soft pack for most of the hike. Summit was moderate, a few gusts around 40 mph but not bad.

1-28-2021 2-3 inches of fresh fluff on a mostly packed trail. wore?snowshoes out and back to keep path consolidated, rock snow-covered. poles helpful on steeps at summit approach. Gusting winds on summit forged a quick retreat. The best views were in the forest today, the snow-covered trees were beautiful!

HikingBlowdownGreat!IcySnow

Trail was broken out by folks on snowshoes after the most recent storm as of the evening of 1/17/2021. The snow bridges over the water crossings seemed mostly stable. Light traction is recommended past the junction with elephant head trail; there are a few sections with blue ice that poles would be helpful for. most of the trail and especially near the wind blown summit had dry uncompacted snow. one blow down to duck under.

Great hike! Slippery spots, bring extra traction. Snow at top is powdery and slippery, only poles could help there I think. Dogs made it up but was much easier and safer off leash. Consider your leash situation/#of dogs on ice and steep spots before being your pet. No view at top but gray jays and snowfall on trees made it worth it. Beautiful trail all the way up.
