Eagles Nest Wilderness Conditions

Postby 14erkid » Tue Oct 15, 2013 2:51 pm

I have been planning a backpacking trip with a school group in the Green Mountain Reservoir/ Gore Range area to Surprise Lake, Tipperary Lake, and Eaglesmere Lake. I know there has been a lot of snow in general in the hills, and I was wondering if anyone knows the conditions about the amount of snow that is up there. Thanks.

This is my trip report from Keller Mountain in Eagles Nest Wilderness from this past Saturday:


There was snow. It was variable, thin in some spots, deep in the others. By the afternoon a good amount had melted around 10,000-11,000 feet but above still good coverage. Not sure what the past couple of days have brought but I think another round of snow is in the forecast later this week.

It was BEAUTIFUL up there.
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where no one intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more......
