10/10 : All non-gully snow had melted. However there was a ton today. Snow line down to 8000'.

9/22-9/23 : Much snow:

9/19 : Snow last night (not much, melted off fast).

9/17 : No more snow, conditions look good.

9/15 : Some snow today. I only saw Challenger west face but it looked like a dusting. Peaks have only been visible briefly each day so it‘s hard to be certain but there was nothing (except the hail, still visible) on the 14th.

9/7 : Pictures here: .

9/2 : There was an absolute ton of hail on Challenger and Kit Carson on the 2nd or 3rd. This stuff doesn‘t appear to have melted yet.

Thinking about KC on Wednesday - does the avenue look passable?

I would guess the avenue is passable, though it's hard to be sure. The north slope is more likely to be iced over, at least until a good warm day (if there is one).


any report on San Luis today?

If anyone knows the conditions around San Luis, that would be great info to know!
