How do yall think the snow conditions will be at this time, I anticipate a decent amount considering the large amount of snow this winter?
I'll gab your ear off for a sec on this topic, I mean, since I have vast, immeasurable knowledge and an untempered will to share it.
We sure have gotten a lot of snow this year (everywhere), so I think I'd share your caution. With that said, two things:
First, is there a way I could marry into your cabin... I mean... family?
Second, the snow line is currently at 10, 500'.
Thus, my super duper (read 'demi-god') spidey-sense tells me most folks (smaller than a baby beluga) would be able to manage the snow on any given day (even with inexperienced kids), based on it thawing out as each day progressed, so that the snow by mid-day (especially if you have some boots on the first couple of people in line to kick platforms) should be easy to cross if there is any. I was just up there and I found that to already be the case. Also, I found that huge areas and most of the trails and ridges only had snow below treeline, which would lead me to ask 'what elevation within the treeline will the snow be?' I think above that you'll be able to have fun picking routes around the patches if need be.
Do you guys bring hiking poles? cause sometimes they give kids and other inexperienced folks a bit more balance and stability on crossing swollen spring streams and snow patches.
PS I'm jealous.
Here's my recent trip report with some pics of that area to judge the snowpack:
