SPRING UPDATE - MAY 20, 2012


Teewinot & Mt Owen from Cascade Canyon - 5/20/12

The snowpack in the high mountains continues to consolidate with wet slides still occurring on steep slopes during warm afternoons.  The canyons generally have patchy snow low down that gradually turns into 100% snow cover in the upper reaches.  As a reminder, Baxter's Pinnacle remains closed due to nesting raptors until further notice (see April post below).

More detailed conditions information is beginning to become available in the Conditions Information links on the right, so check back often to see updates on your favorite canyon, pass, or peak.  The Jenny Lake Ranger Station will open at 8:00am on Saturday, May 26.  Stop in, say hi, and get the latest information on climbing and backcountry conditions from our knowledgeable staff of Climbing Rangers.
