I’ve been working on quantifying the melt-out dates for Summer hikers/climbers/bikers for the last couple days. Keep in mind these are “most likely dates” based on statistics at particular elevations. It’s sourced from NRCS SNOTEL data. Additional storm systems could delay these projections. And, there will certainly be pockets of deep snow in couloirs, higher elevations, and shaded areas beyond these dates so take traction and pack accordingly.
*Next 45 days:
The best data suggests “Below Normal Temperatures in CO and Above Normal Precipitation”. This would delay melting.
**Planning Ahead:
Memorial Day Weekend: Plan on deep snowpack in most zones at mid and high elevations.
July 4 Weekend: Pockets of deep snowpack lingering at mid and high elevations mixed with complete melt-out in spots. May still need traction.
***Note: “Melt-out” does not mean 100% free of visual snow every where you look. It refers to these NRCS SNOTEL automated sensors being free of snow. We’ll have visual snow well into July.
