We made a quick trip up Mt. Washington (cascades) last night. The trail was in good shape up to the Owl Hike Lookout save a few blowdowns where snow became constant. We continued on and broke off the main trail at the first switchback and headed for the towers on the north ridge. The snow was sufficient to cover the brush in all but a few places. There were a few tricky places up by the towers where there was only a thing coating of snow over steep rock. After a trip to the towers we bypassed on left and headed for the ridge in deep snow skirting rocks in trees. It began to snow heavily. One member of our party fell in a big hole near a rock but was able to stop up to his armpits and scramble out. The summit lump was in a white out. It took over a hour to get back to the car as there were too many holes to glissade. All in all, good exercise. It seemed like near winter conditions.
