    How was the trail? How much snow & how high up was it encountered? Is Obsidian Falls a possibility tomorrow, ya think?

      Snow started around 5,500 ft. Going in and out of the snow. The trail was very easy to follow the entire way. The snow depth was probably 12 inches & less. At Scott Pass, Approx 6,200 ft., still not much snow, but the area is open & exposed to the sun. North facing and shaded areas will obviously have more snow. I would think the Falls are very doable.

    Couldn't ask for a better day! The weather was perfect! I even used my snow shoes and spikes a bit. This is a fantastic hike and will definitely be on my list. Thanks Gary and Laura!

    I'd like to hike this trail but I don't have traction devices for hiking in the snow. Sounds like there is a significant amount of snow and I don't want to create hassles for the group. So, I'll have to fore go this hike.

      Yesterdays hike to Moraine Lake via Green Lakes Trail had snow halfway up the trail approximately 12 to 16 inches in areas. Traction devices are not required but highly suggest for those individuals who are not comfortable hiking in snow/ice. Out of the ten people yesterday two people wore theirs.

    FYI... we did a nine mile ski yesterday up to the ditch at Broken Top and there was 14 inches of snow at our turnaround point at about 6850 ft. With warmer weather and sunshine a good share may melt by Sunday... but there may be significant snow in spots!

    Weather looks good for our hike, however I am pretty sure we will have snow on the trail. Please make sure you have some sort of traction for your boots, For those potential icy conditions ie..Micro Spikes, Yak Tracks..
