Current Conditions On the rims

Postby WanderingJim » Fri Mar 19, 2021 1:19 pm

So, I've been wanting to go to Yosemite this Winter and do a little Winter backpacking. The low snowfall kept me from going and February's big dump coincided with some scheduling problems.

With the little storm they are getting today, the next few days look good weather wise and should have some nice fresh snow on the ground above 7k, but the big questions is the conditions on the ground.

I'll either take a short 1-2 night hike out to Dewey Point from Badger Pass or a 2 night hike up Snow Creak or Yosemite Falls trail to spend some time along the north rim.

Anyone been in Yosemite recently know what the trail conditions were like before the storm?

Thanks. Since the facilities at Badger Pass are all closed, I had forgotten about that webcam.

I ended up spendign the night at Dewey Point. Cold, but a nice overnight in the snow.
