Comments
Comments: Several inches of packed powder on the Lincoln Woods Trail. The railroad ties are almost completely covered, and the trail is now skiable (I saw a few skiers and lots of tracks on my return).


Osseo is in fantastic shape and easily barebooted/microspiked. In fact, one could probably snowshoe the entire hike if so inclined. There is no ice to speak of, and the steeps/ladders have great boot steps kicked in making the going fast for both the ascent and descent.


Franconia Ridge Trail between Flume and Liberty has been packed out by snowshoes and is super speedy. Gorgeous day to be out on these peaks. 8/48 No Northern Pass Single Season Winter!
