I just zoomed by the PCT trail sign a few hours ago. A mile away, there is at least five feet of snow on the ground, but at the sign, the rock was almost bare. New granular snow was coming down.

PCT Near Ebbits Pass (between Tahoe-Yosemite) on 05/09/2010 20:00:38 MDT Print View

Yesterday I drove up Hwy 4 from Stockton toward Ebbits Pass. Road closed at Alpine Lake, just pass Bear Valley, way before Ebbits Pass. Still a lot of snow above 5,000 ft.

I think the top of Ebbetts Pass is around 8700 feet.

Carson Pass (just one pass north) had about five feet of old snow at 9300 feet, where I camped. The sky was clear enough that I could see Lake Tahoe in the distance.
