Who has snow left

Postby hberry » Tue Jun 08, 2010 1:06 pm

Hoping to get another round of skiing in this weekend - would like it to be on a 14er but if there is better snow somewhere else I'm happy to go. It looked like Rocky Mtn Natl Park still had decent snow when I was biking on Peak to Peak this weekend.

So...Where is the best snow in the state right now to ski?

Skied refrigerator on Ice last weekend and I'd call it pretty well cooked. Same for lines here in the Elks- the snow that's left is really dirty and melting fast. The couple of TR's from in/near RMNP look a lot nicer than anything down this way. Stay safe- lots of hot days and poor/non-existent freezes = bad news.

I went up to Ice as well this weekend, how was the ski? I decided to bail and go for a stroll to Lake Ann instead.

It goes, but it isn't great- dirty sticky snow, some rockfall now on the snow surface, melting out in the narrowest section. I'd say save it for another year...

snowy range was pretty corniced out last weekend, but as soon as they dropped (looking ready to deliver last friday), the range should be optimal for some summertime turns.
