- Remarks - Whiteface Inn Lane to the top of the pass still had cover as of Thursday, but that's about it for the Jackrabbit Trail this season.
- BACKCOUNTRY CONDITIONS:
Snow Depth at Lake Colden: 15"
Snow Depth at 4,000 feet: 3-4 feet
Surface Conditions: spring surfaces
Remarks: As noted above snow pretty much melted below 2,500 feet. Streams are high, and unbridged crossings will be difficult. Calamity Brook approach has some rotten snow, but no longer a good crossing of the Opalescent River in Flowed Lands.
- * Skis and snowshoes still required in the High Peaks Wilderness Area and needed elsewhere.
- * Meadow Lane has been blocked off for the winter, adding 3/4 mile to approach of Marcy Dam.
- * No lake ice is safe. .
- * Time to think about lower level hiking trails on south-facing slopes that have dried out. Bald Peak from New Russia, Rooster Comb and Little Porter in Keene Valley are possibilities for this weekend. ______
