Humboldt conditions?

Postby eskermo » Thu Nov 29, 2012 5:21 pm

Has anybody been to Humboldt or the Crestones recently? Any info on current conditions on the South Colony Lakes road and trail/snow conditions would be appreciated.

I plan on tackling Humboldt Saturday morning so it would be nice to get an idea of the gear I need to pack and figure out if I can drive all the way to the upper trailhead.

I would bet good money you can hike the standard route of Humboldt without any winter equipment.

road is hard packed snow, steeper sections may be difficult if it's above freezing, water on ice. snow packed trail all the way, above treeline is 98% brown on south and west slopes.
