Awesome, thanks holeinbow! I like the fish creek trail for my first time.

If you're going in the winter, or even early Spring, the road to Fish Creek likely will still be closed for the winter. Thus the South Fork Trail is your best access with the snowboard. From what I've read over the years, it seems like most people do it in at least 2 days, camping overnight near Dry Lake. I'm sure you saw my avalanche picture from about a month ago: [Click Here] I don't have much avalanche knowledge, but I'd be extra cautious up there this year.

That is true, but actually it is just closed. This is the current condition from the USFS
"Forest Road 1N05 remains closed due to work related to the 2015 Lake Fire."
Fish Creek trailhead and trail is open, just can't drive to it.

Thanks guys! I'd give it a couple more weeks, if I can convince my wife. If not this year maybe next year. The avalanche danger has me spooked.

I'm quite certain if I had told my dear wife there were only 3 months without snow, we'd still be living in Huntington Beach.

May 20 : 09:33am
We've also had snow on Sept 19= a friend's birthday celebration was outside that year. Ha! Moved inside quickly!

May 20 : 09:33am
I know we had snow on June 19th a few years ago- maybe 10?

May 20 : 09:27am
I think it was 1984 we had snow on June 6th. Only remember because we had company who only brought shorts and tees. Plus it was my hubby's brother's birthday.

I know sparman. I'm living in denial. I love our weather, love that our forest is getting moisture and our lake is getting water.

Good morning LJ - the only months we haven't had snow since we've lived here are July, August & September. A few years back we had some on June 9th.

May 20 : 09:18am
Thanks Sparman! Yes, it is melting very fast! Better get over here to Summit quickly as we only have snow for another 5 minutes of snowboarding!

May 20 : 09:15am
3" of snow in Skyforest, melting fast.

May 20 : 09:12am
