Snow report in Bear Lakes Basin

Post by ereinys » Sat Aug 10, 2019 1:48 pm

Hi all--
Will be starting an XC trip next weekend which will put us in Bear Lakes Basin around Aug 21/22. Just curious if anyone has any recent snow reports over Feather, White Bear and Gabbot passes? We are debating whether to throw in the microspikes---so crazy to be pondering this for late August. Definitely throwing in the head net based on recent mosquito reports. Thanks.

Check mrogers recent TR and Ian Harlen went in there appreciably earlier and had a fabulous winter trip in mid-Summer. I'm guessing you'll be OK if you wait for things to warm up each morning, but if you want to start early, pack the micros. cameron
