Comments: Absolutely amazing trail conditions this morning! The best winter conditions that I have personally experienced on the Osceola's. Trails had a nice pack, and some soft snow on top that was nice and grippy. I wore Hillsounds start to finish. Most of those I saw today were in snowshoes, from comments I heard it was due to the televators. I prefer Hillsounds over snowshoes and televators...personal choice. Either work fine in the conditions just now, depending on your preference. All water crossings were snow bridged or easy to step over. Awesome morning with plenty of sunshine, blue skies and stellar views!
