Snow Conditions Update

Postby Keyser Soze » Sun May 24, 2009 10:51 am

Saw the dust issues from AZ earlier in the season affecting SW CO. Anyone with updated info. Would this still be an issue in the Chicago Basin or around the Handies group? Not final yet but planning the trip over the next 3 to 4 weeks and can push it back to late June at the latest... are we in the clear at this point?

There was a skiing TR from May 9th recently on TGR. Still looked pretty deep then. The author (killingcokes) posts here sometimes, so he might have more comments. In his pictures, it doesn't look as dirty as some other parts of the San Juans, but the dust is definitely there. Nonetheless, you'll probably still be dealing with snow up high, so you'll want an axe and gaiters at least, I'd guess.
Some people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of white blood cells.
