TRANSITIONAL TIME IN THE TETONS - JULY 2, 2016

The snow is melting fast in the high country.  An axe and crampons are still recommended to access the Lower Saddle as well as some of the high alpine sheltered terrain.  Expect snow/ice/verglas in the shady nooks and crannies and dry conditions on the sunny, exposed ridges.  Ice axes are still useful in negotiating some of the passes along the Teton Crest.  See the links for each area for more information.
