Kearsarge Pass Trail Conditions - May 2014

Postby orbitor » Thu May 08, 2014 12:22 pm

I'm looking for updates on the trail to Kearsarge Pass. Based on the most recent reports, the snow level in the Eastern Sierra is about 10,000 ft. If anyone's been up to the pass from Onion Valley (and down the other side), I'd really appreciate some information. Thanks.

Here is a thread: http://www.whitneyzone.com/wz/ubbthread ... and_broken
The last post is from someone who went to KP on 4/19. This at least gives you an idea
of the conditions you should expect Orbitor.

Thanks for the link, Mav. Looks like lots of snow still.
