The dog days of summer have hit. It's hot, dry and lots of people are crawling around in the hills. Arriving with a plan A and B is recommended for those seeking overnight permits in the Park.

Snow has melted out of most areas, with just a few stubborn patches lingering here and there.

JULY SNOW STORM! - JULY 10-11,2016

4" of new snow reported at the Lower Saddle along with 50-70mph gusts.  The fixed lines and watering hole were encased in ice - similar to current conditions up high in the mountains.  Expect "alpine" conditions for the next number of days, particularly in the east to north to west facing terrain as well as the sheltered terrain and ledges of the southerly terrain.
