Seymour, off-trail snowshoeing to Dog Mountain. Almost firm enough to go with crampons, 90% of steps would hold, but when you do break through a deep plunge, sometimes straight down full leg length. Went with snowshoes, not too comfortable. Clattery and grabby, with a few spots the crust wasn't firm enough for good traction, yet firm enough to go for an uncontrollable slide should one fall. Boots gave excellent traction almost anywhere (subject to the occasional deep plunge, of course), only a few spots were hard enough to not crunch down an inch and give great footing. Softening up a bit by 1:00.
Another night or two of freezing and it will be astonishingly fast and fun travel on crampons, possibly even just boots but watch for the few spots too icy, and anywhere a slide happened would be nasty on boots.
We need a good dump before skis or snowshoes are any fun at all.
