    Thanks!! Don’t often head up in the snow since it doesn’t linger long for us, but I’ve enjoyed heading up to dry lake via snowshoeing once a year!!

    Thanks everyone. Glad you enjoyed the report. I couldn’t believe how much had melted in just a few short hours down at the meadow, poopout, and lower!

    @MikeH and @stbrnnr

    Thank you both for the feedback.
    Props for the mat trick. I might still have one in the garage. Now that you mentioned it I do recall that being a sucky part last time I snowshoed years ago LOL No Wet Butt Team!

    Whoop I can just picture it now! Sounds so beautiful!

    I am a avid ” all but winter” hiker. Only done snow hikes a few times. I plan on going up next weekend just to snowshoe t the lake which I have done before, but I wanted to ask what you guys recommend to have that is essential for winter/snow hikes.

    I will have the 10 essentials as well as my InReach and extra layers, but I am always open to more feedback and learning!

    Vivian Creek – Hey everyone-

    camping at summit n Sunday night- Am I crazy to show up to the parking lot around 10-12 in the morning on Sunday?? I saw the SAR post on facebook with the overflow at moymer. I figured people should be coming down around that time and leaving. Just would like some other opinions! Please and thank you!

    I know 2-3 weeks ago, I read that someone had turned around on the switch backs due to too much snow. There is water at the dry / dollar lake JCT per usual. After that I don’t have any info – sorry! I know there has been a lot of melt too.

    Chris, Thank you for all the info! I think I will go for Lake Peak first, seems more straight forward. — I do recall reading about the cannabis last year here. I didn’t realize that was Grinnell, so thank you for the heads up – I would not want to run into that by any means! Crazy.
