Comments
Comments: Enough snow on Lincoln Woods Trail to cover most of the underlying ice, but not really enough yet for x-c skiing; rungs of the ladders on upper Osseo caked with hardpacked snow; thin snowpack on top of white ice on final 0.1 mile below summit, but left microspikes in pack to save time; lots of obstructions underlying snow on upper Osseo Trail slowed descent somewhat, but boot skied what I could; my first NH4 on December 25th (next up: a NH4 on February 29th)
