Current Conditions on Southside 5-2-2013
It’s really starting to melt down low but still skiable. A little smokey!
Between 7,000-8,000 ft. it’s marginal and 9,000 up~ GOOD!
It’s still going to be awhile before the road opens up to the Old Ski Bowl.
Today (Monday) a friend and I headed over to the North Gate Trailhead. We were able to drive within a half mile before reaching snow.
We were able to skin up from where we parked. Snow was a little patchy down low but consistent most of the way.
We skinned up to 9,200 ft. before hitting the winds making conditions icy and rough. Found nice snow all the way down to the trail head. Probably not going to last long with the warm temps we’ve been having.
Wondering what’s been happening over at Castle Lake…
Now’s a good time to go waterfall hiking. This was an all day hike located in the Castle Crags Wilderness.
Miller was may things; miner and traveler; horse thief, lawyer, and judge, Indian hunter and Indian supporter; truth-bender, writer, and at times an amazingly accurate historical interpreter of California in the mid-1800s.
