    Just spent three days at Feathertop - posted some icy pics in the Snow Talk forum.

    Variable depth, a couple of inches to a few feet depending on the exposure. Western side of the razorback is pretty much bare, but Eastern side is still good.

    Very icy in the mornings with the top few inches turning to slush in the afternoons and freezing again overnight.
