Anyone been up this week, specifically around the N/S Arapaho area? I'm curious how this weather system has affected the snowpack. Scott McMahon

Skywalker is slush, with knee deep postholing and great potential for slides and rockfall...The heat is on. Tits McGee

Yes...the heat is on. Weird snow conditions this year due to the significant late season snow. The couloirs and snow gullies have the typical amount of snow in them for this time of year, but the valleys still have significant accumulation. Of course its melting rather quickly now, but expect some good ol' postholing upon your exit. Aaron Pence

Thanks all for not letting me waste my Saturday. :o(

Anyone have a further update after the week of sunshine, specifically regarding the Crooked Couloir on Mt Audobon? Aaron Pence

If you're looking to do some nice hiking on a rest day or whatnot, check out Devil's Lake area. I went up around Lost Lakes last weekend for some backpacking and it was beautiful! Only rained one night, and during the day the temps were perfect.
There is a LOT of run-off though, so some parts of the trails are flooded. The 'streams' also are almost purely white, they're raging so hard -- uber cool tho

Just incase it wasn't painfully obvious, Skywalker only has snow in the middle. Not that that is suprising, but I was up in the saddle on Saturday.

When's it gonna snow again!?!?!
