Northern Sierra is near average, but southern Sierra is below average.
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.

The "April 1" survey is now just getting started. Article in paper said it may take 10 days to complete. More snow coming the next few days. So it is not done yet. I would tend to say it will be pretty near average rather than below average. I like the glass half full idea!

Yes the snow will help, but then a high pressure is moving in to replace it, bringing above average temps for several days. Hopefully April has a few surprises.
