    When do they think the trails will be passable? Like how much snow is up there? I was just curious.

    MATC is up on the Hunt Trail doing work, it won't open til they're done. There's still plenty of snow on the tableland and at Chimney Pond. I'll be up there Sunday > Wednesday, hope to learn more. We need clouds. Clouds eat snow.
