Pawnee Pass Conditions?

Postby YonderMountain » Thu Jul 07, 2011 3:22 pm

Was wondering if anyone has been up there in the past week? Wondering how much snow is at the pass? Is Brainard Lake winter gate closed?

Thank you!!

Brainard Lake gate is open but the gate below the Long and Mitchell Lake trailheads were still closed on Saturday. The snow drift on the road near the Long Lake TH is well shaded and it looked like it might stick around a little while longer.

I believe the pass itself is relatively dry on top...but there's plenty of snow on the way there. I'm pretty sure I took this photo looking up at where the pass trail is from near Lake Isabelle:

Any photos of Paiute? Wondering if it is still "skiable"...
