Comments
Comments: We walked up Tripoli Rd which was still mostly packed snow. (Saw one skier coming down.) Then we took Mt Osceola Trail out/back to Osceola and East Osceola. We barebooted Tripoli Rd and maybe 1 mile of Mt Osceola Trail then used spikes until we got back to the same point. It was well packed and solid on the way up. A little slushier on the way down. There were a bunch of previous post holes but I only got stuck in one once. Three of us used the Chimney bypass which was mostly ice free and one used the bypass of the bypass.
