Does anyone have any updated conditions for Glen Pass? Last NPS TC report was posted on 8/7.

Hi Dana,

Welcome to HST!

SEKI NP TC:
8/17 - There are two snowfields on the North side of Glen Pass- roughly 30% remains covered in snow. No technical gear necessary. Stock Impassable.
That is the most up to date info you will find. :)

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, an HST member: http://reconn.org

Hey Dana,

Just over Glen on the 26th. South side is totally melted out. North side had two stretches of snow that you had to cross but there is a lot of traffic through there so I didn't even feel like I had to fish my microspikes out of my bag to do it. Saw multiple people doing the Rae Lakes loop in sneakers that were fine.
