Anyone know how much snow Sugarloaf got this storm? Think it'll be dry by Saturday?

I am interested as well. My slightly educated guess is that there will be snow still on the ground but any routes that gets southern exposure will be clear but there might be some weeping depending on the route.

I'm planning to climb there this weekend so if anyone has more up to date info on the conditions lmk. Looks like it's gonna be warm all week and warm/sunny on the weekend (65) so it should be melting?

Climbed Sunday. Majority of the snow on the ground was gone by end of day. Routes were 99% dry. Go for it.

I'm happy Sugarloaf and a bunch of Highway 50 climbing is open but we sure could use some of that snow...first half of February is looking pretty dismal according to NOAA long-range forecasts.

Not holding out much hope for the winter. Might as well get back in climbing/trail running shape a little early :-/

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
