Comments
Comments: The ski trail was well packed down up to the junction. After we turned and started climbing up the Mount Osceola Trail, the trail was still mostly in great shape except for a few one off postholes. The trail was very easy to follow between the summits and felt a little bit softer until we got up to the clearing up on Mount Osceola. The bypass at the chimney section was easy to follow with careful steps, will include photos for those curious what that looks like these days. Counted 5 wearing spikes, 8 or so wearing snowshoes and everyone seemed to be enjoying their time out there!
