Looking at climbing Mt Massive tomorrow. How much snow should i expect up top? Anyone climb up high recently?
Not sure about Massive, but I was in the North Fork Clear Creek area today. At 12,000 feet there was about 3 inches of snow, and melting. The north and east sides of peaks had snow but you could see rock up there. The south and west facing slopes were snow free. The CO 390 was clear, I took it all the way up to the end by West Winfield trailhead.
I hiked French Mtn today, which is next to Massive. I agree with the assessment above. Brought microspikes but never used em.
