Comments
Comments: Greeley Ponds Trail was broken out to the junction. Soft powder under foot.
Mt Osceola Trail had not been broken out since last weeks storm. There was some hard packed spots and drifts. None that were too bad.

As always the steeps going up East were snowed in and tough to move up slope. #alwaysfun

Where the chimney is the ledge was full of snow. I made it up with snowshoes
(very tough) but the 2 behind me decided to bushwhach far to the right of the ledge. All three of us decided to come down the bushwhach. Much safer. Thank you Georg using your good judgement!!

All in all the Osceolas going in this route is always very challenging. #butthisiswhywedoit#challenges#getoutside#notsolo#goodcompany#thankyou
