Mt Whitney trail and road conditions?

Postby DR » Tue Dec 18, 2012 1:52 pm

I'm planning on heading up to Whitney the day after Christmas. Does anyone have current beta on where the road is closed, and what the mountaineers route is like? I'm still looking for a partner too! Thanks for any info you can share, and email me if you are interested I'm going.

Check with Inyo County for the road, and the best updates for the main trail are typically over at the portal store site. Also, stop in at the portal store hostel to see if a recent hiker left some beta, and the webcam is useful before leaving the house.

We day hiked the main trail eight days ago. The road was open and dry. The trail was partially packed by other hikers. We posted a TR with a link to photos on both WPS and WZ websites. Conditions may change a lot by December 26.
