BobSmithMore snow?


Voted 10/10

In the past couple of years you've mentioned that there was a lack of snow on the higher peaks. Was there more this year?

Thanks for looking. 2008 was a hot and dry spring (altough winter of 2008 had been a cold and snowy one). 2009 was the exact opposite, Winter was very mild but spring became very cold and wet. My guide told me that it probably snowed more on the mountains in spring than it did in winter.

Overall, the mountains in June of 2009 had very good snow cover.
