    Hello! I left a comment a number of posts back,with no answer ,i think!
    I wondering your thoughts on middle of may access up to the routes on the east side,specificly ,the wintun routes. How will the roads be do you think. I cant tell if it will be similar to last year ,where access from the trailheads was doable due to low snow. Is it a normal snow year ans do you see easy access in mid maY? Thanx from a vet ski mountaineer living the dream!

    • Hello,
      A friend of mine skied the Wintun a couple weeks ago. He summited and said the upper portion is definitely still winter conditions. They were able to drive to the first switchback at 5,900 ft. With the temps warming up, Mid May might be just right. If I get anymore information or head over there, I’ll post.
      Cheers,
      Robin
