January 23 - It's winter, dress appropriately today and stay in the forest. Prospect Farm has received 6-8" of new snow in the past 4 days. A dusting of snow in the village added to the snowpack. Yesterday, Bengt Karlsson, Tony Federer, Charlie Kellogg and I went up to Popple Mtn to explore a new route between Popple and Maple Mtns. We skied up Popple Mtn on the Hall Trail and donned our snowshoes and trekked across to Maple Mtn Loop on the 1900' contour. This new, easy route would eliminate the challenging climb just beyond the Maple Mtn Loop up to the summit of Popple Mtn if heading north, or the fast decent if heading south.
