Comments: Red-lining ramble to Greeley Ponds today. I needed the southern end from Waterville Valley to Mt Osceola trail. A few hikers and skiers ahead of me broke trail most of the way. Goodrich Rock trail must have been broken yesterday as there's only 4" over the trail as I passed by it. Timber Camp trail is seemingly untouched. The "hiking trail" section before and along the west side of Lower Greeley was unbroken so I broke trail through 12-18" of powder with some bigger drifts. The hiking trail section above Lower Greeley must have been broken yesterday as I only made fresh tracks in about 4" of fresh powder and same goes for the section of trail west of Upper Greeley. The trail was broken all the way to Mt Osceola trail which was broken itself. Snow conditions change considerably on my return trip as the temp rose a few degrees above freezing and some light drizzle and some sleet mixed in and turned all the powder into mashed potatoes. Snowshoes are certainly recommended as the snow the past few days has added nearly 2 feet to the snow-pack.
