Trip Reports

Saturday January 11 2020 Stowe Pinnacle hike by Steve and Heather Bailey

The forecast was for rain and freezing rain, but not until the afternoon, so we decided to take a chance and do the hike. Temperatures were in the 40's, so the snow was starting to turn to slush, but still firm enough to support our weight. We wore microspikes, as there were patches of ice, some with water flowing over them. At the top, the wind was blowing at 20-30 mph, but it was nearly 50 degrees by that point, so it was quite pleasant, though sometimes difficult to keep one's balance. The view was surprising good, given that bad weather was moving in.
