Planned to do this hike today--started at Crawford notch and sumitted Jackson first, the trail was fairly well packed and we didn't need any crampons or snowshoes. Planned to go over to Pierce, however the trail wasn't broken yet and even with snowshoes on we were up to our waist--same with heading to Webster. It was a beautiful day however and the Gray Jays were out, Mt. Washington was clearly visible and decked out in snow. Tough climb straight up, but going down was fun--sliding on the snow on our butts makes for quick descent time! My pup came along too and she did great, the snow was soft and had no ice so her paws didn't crack at all and she was warm enough with just a wool sweater and waterproof top coat.
