Current conditions on Tolumne meadows and snow line

Postby burtonator » Thu Jun 30, 2011 2:56 pm

Two quick questions.

1. What's the snow line? About 8500 feet or so?

2. Is Tolumne meadow still covered in snow? My niece and I want to hike in from the tolumne river area so we'll be coming in from the north west into the meadows. Our goal is to get to the grocery store there, restock, and then head back to our tent.

1. about that, but it's melting fast...

2. The meadow is under water. Snow lingers in the trees and all around. I have heard nothing indicating that the store, campground, grill or anything else is open.
