February first week snow report

The following is the snow report (on tops of the boulders) for the first week of February:


"Poachable" rocks off I-90 between Rocker and Ramsay: Bare and dry--totally climbable

This is private land, but could easily be reconned with local assistance


Maud S Canyon: Bare and dry with trace snow on North facing features on top


Rock Resorts: Nearly dry tops on 50% of the boulders


Benchlands: Some snow on tops of all rocks, except those in large clusters--broomable


Tony's Tracks: Nearly dry tops on 50% of the boulders


West Tracks: Snow on top with some dry where heavily clustered--broomable


Desert: Snow on top in all areas, receding daily--broomable


Ringing Rocks: Not available at this time



Google Earth visual report:
Photobucket



I will update this report Friday afternoon--hopefully, predicted warmer temps and sun? will improve current reported condition.


edit: Photos will be included in the update...

Good update, Hutch!

We've got the melt here in Wyoming too. Once it's all dry I would be happy to trade a tour down here for a tour up there. Nice looking rock!

Davin, we'll put that in the planning--at the very least, it would be good for my small crew to go on a "Spring" road trip there:-)

That'd be super fun in both respects!
