current snow conditions

Recommended Posts

Could anyone give me an idea of how much snow there is at the upper PCT elevation levels (~6500') on the west sides of Hood, Jefferson, or 3FJack? Especially the latter 2. Sno-tel and NOAA isn't especially helpful for up that high.

 

I'm hoping to be up there mid-week next week, and i'm trying to gauge just how much snow would need to melt off or consolidate for it to be ok travel without skins or snowshoes. thanks!

This time of year conditions change almost hourly. I'd suggest posting something on one of the boards of hikers who visit those areas, or look at hiking reports. In Washington it would be the WTA. Not sure about Orygun.

Haven't been there, but the pass was reopened on 11-7

Chinook and Cayuse passes are closed for the season.

 

Since they haven't closed HWY 20 and based on other photos of snowpack in the mountains there will be skiable snow but not a thick base.

 

Could be a bit sketchy for skiing.
