Good chance. Depends on your route though; obviously some places may hold it and some routes are less problematic with snow.

The snow was melting fast on Elbert today and looked like the same on surrounding 14ers. Almost all of it should be gone by this weekend I'd think.

As warm as is forecasted, I bet the sun facing slopes will be dry or nearly so by Saturday. It was just barely cold enough to snow yesterday. A lot of moisture though.

Jason--thanks for the beta! It looks like Challenger's melted off rather quickly, which is good news...hoping to still do the Crestones traverse on Sunday. We'll see how things clear up...
