Current conditions of Bear Lakes Basin passes

Postby jonster » Sun Jun 07, 2015 10:37 am

I'm a newbie to this forum so hopefully this is the correct place for my query.

I'm starting my first sierra backcountry trip of 2015 on June 24 and was considering a loop through French Canyon, Bear Lakes Basin and Granite park from the Pine Creek TH. This will be over four nights so I have plenty of time. I'm wondering if anyone has any information on the conditions (level of snow etc…) for these passes: Feather Pass, Dancing Bear Pass, Italy Pass, Granite Bear Pass.

Thanks in advance.

HI Jonsters,

Welcome to HST! No reports from that area yet.
When you get some time an intro would be appreciated here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9329
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member:
