Is Ediza through Iceberg & Cecile passable in May?

Postby Smnold » Mon Dec 13, 2010 11:48 am

I did this trip in July. I loved it and want to do it again & have time off in May. I'm just starting to consider this hike at this time. Does anyone know what the weather/snow conditions are historically? Also does the shuttle run that early in the season?

In July I parked at the mammoth ski area & took the shuttle to agnew are starting point. Day 1 hiked the high trail to thousand island. Day 2 hiked to Ediza via the JMT. Day 3 hiked to minerat by going XC through iceberg & cecile dropping down into minerat. Day 3 hiked out to soda springs catching the shuttle back up to the ski area. Beautiful hike but even in July there was snow around iceberg/cecile. That stretch was tough. The boulder part up from iceberg to cecile had no snow & would surely be a different (more difficult) with snow there as well.

Any and all opinions & comments appreciated.

Thanks

This is easy, roads will be snowed in, of coarse no shuttle.
Several feet of snow, all lakes still frozen.
