Yosemite May 1st Snowpack Survey

Yosemite NPS:

Park staff conducted snow surveys last week and found snowpack is just under 60% of average for May 1. Snowpack above 8,000 feet is more substantial, with three to six feet of snow at most snow courses. (Almost all of the snow courses were snow-free last year at this time.)

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: http://reconn.org
