Shavano, Princeton, Yale, Tabeguache condition in June

Post by arpwalker » Fri Apr 02, 2021 4:02 pm

Greetings to All who consider themselves "locals" in Colorado: How high is the probability that there will be problematic snow on trails in the end of June on Shavano, Princeton, Yale and Tabeguache Peak? Planning my long weekend trip for the last weekend in June and trying to estimate a risk that conditions will not allow me to summit... thanks for all answers.

usually there is some snow still around, but doable in tennis shoes in late June

Late June snowfields are usually just a bit of a fun challenge but shouldn't be enough to dissuade anyone.

There is a trip report for shavano and tabeguache form June 20th of 2020.
It shows just about no snow at all on either peak, and the route between the two summits.
