Comments
Comments: I forgot how many ups and down the oceola trail has. Greeley ponds was well packed down. I put on snowshoes a little before East Peak to preserve tbe trail. Hikers with crampons were really chopping it up and postholing and i can't imagine the traction was all that effective but who knows. I did have to really dig in sometimes with the snowshoes to get up and down the steep parts safely.

There were many parts of the trail between East Peak and Oceola and on the way down fromEast Peak that were great for sledding. It was a fast and furious ride down.
