Surprisingly little snowpack for a mid-January hike up Ampersand Mtn. Weather calm and cool and gray, with the sun faintly shining through a thin cloud deck. Easy hiking (bareboot on perhaps 2 inches of snowpack) along the flats and then up the slopes of Ampersand, with the snow depth increasing only slightly as we climbed. Conditions on summit remarkably calm and docile, with a few flakes lazily drifting down out of the sky. Visibility decent despite the overcast and flurries. Total round-trip time a decent three hours and thirty minutes.
