A few years back I was teaching Outdoor Education, and Sandwich Notch was one of our favorite trips. If you poke around a bit (bring a headlamp) there are some cool passageways that connect under the boulders. Some of them are pretty extensive.

Plan on ski or snowmobile access to the Notch this time of year.

Preferably ski.

Osceola, approached from the Kanc, is an awesome winter hike. Steep, but usually packed out, and you probably won't need snowshoes.

Careful atop the slabs on Welsh-Dickey. I nearly lost a kid off of those in Summer (at risk teens know everything; NOT!)

yeah this summer we tried to climb up the face of what is considered the half way point of welsh....its no where near vertical but still steep as hell....we made it about halfway up and took a little break and then when we continued on we made it about 10 feet and almost got stuck, in that we couldn't move forward and the move back was sketchy as hell

i am wondering how good the trail blazes are in the winter because once you get abouve treeline they paint them on the slab, i imagine they would be covered in snow........worse comes to worse i will just bring my maps and compass and do some bushwhackin' back to my camp.
