Running Mid Mountain in December

Yesterday I tried to run the Hunter's section of the Mid Mountain Trail. There hasn't been much new snow recently so I thought it might be doable if snowshoers had packed it out. Heading up to Pinebrook Peak was perfect in microspikes, but past that there was really only animal tracks and a couple ski tracks. I stayed on the west side of the ridge where the snow was thin but then eventually dropped over the ridge onto the trail. The rest of the trail was mainly uneven crusty moose tracks and shin deep post-holing, not very runnable but I still enjoyed it. When I got to The Canyons I coasted down the groomers which was really nice after miles of slogging.
