Prerequisites
Previous winter hiking experience OR experience with similarly difficult three-season hikes

Join us for a Sunday hike to experience the awesomeness (osc-omeness?) of Mount Osceola's double summits! With some new snow forecast for Saturday, we expect to make full use of our snowshoes and potentially transition to crampons in the steeper sections, pushing this typically-moderate hike into the "Difficult" range (we'll bring microspikes too). Given the snowfall predicted for this weekend, we may be breaking trail up the mountain!

We'll approach via the Greeley Ponds Trail, ascend the mighty East Osceola, and traipse over to Mount Osceola itself before returning the way we came. Expect about 7.6 miles roundtrip and 2600 feet of elevation gain on a pretty steep trail.
