- Snow on trail
The trail is in good shape with patchy snow starting at about 4000ft and becoming continuous at 5000 ft. Marmot pass is still a blanket of at least 6 ft of snow. Hikers will have to navigate through the snow for the last 1000ft as the trail is still buried.
We had some stunning views at the pass and even saw a marmot in the snow!
