As of a few days ago, visible snow on the Crestone group from the west was at its highest point of the year. The last few days have been mostly sunny with very high temperatures (70s in the valley) and snow is visibly less with each day. There appears to still be full snow cover from about 11000' and up. Visually, the Crestone group appears to have significantly more snow than the Blanca group now. Kit Carson avenue is a mass of white, and no doubt all the gullies are pretty deep as well. More snow is forecast for tomorrow.

The east side of the range is more north-facing and no doubt holds a lot more snow by this point.
