recent condition reports zoomed to the immediate neighborhood of Marcy.

Microspikes are a good idea this time of year.

I suspect that with the warm weather over these few days the snow will take a significant beating, if not disappear altogether. Winter might make a comeback towards the weekend, though, as temps are expected to drop significantly with some additional snow possible as well.

Well, it's been a couple weeks, but when we were there it was muddy and wet at the bottom and snowey with light wind at the top. Snow got to maybe a foot with deeper drifts. Good traction (no ice) maybe 20 degrees with ten mile an hour wind. Our water was freezing in the bottles. Hope that helps, Good Luck!
