Where is Yale's snow?

Postby Dex » Tue Mar 05, 2013 1:30 pm

Today I took a drive to Yale's Denny Creek TH. There is about 2" of snow visiable from the parking lot on the trail. A high of 46 today and 52 tomorrow in BV should melt a lot.

I don't think there will be any miricles happening this year.

So the trail is pretty clear? Have a guess for avy conditions on the standard?

I took a hike to the climber's ridge - after the 2nd log crossing - on the standard route. There was snow. It looks like May conditions - cold early morning enough to walk on the snow but you need snow shoes later as it warms up. Then again the area before the 2nd log crossing was not very deep.

On the climber's ridge the snow was in the 3.5' area and I'm guessing deeper under the trees. Someone was in the area and they did make a trench but they appear to have gone off the standard route some.

Up to where I went there weren't any avy issues - but there usually aren't. More snow is expected this weekend.
