The high yesterday only reached 30 degrees. Our overnight low bottomed out at 7 degrees. It is 8 degrees and light snow flurries with light winds. We received 1.23” of precipitation. We received 11” of snow with drifts much higher in exposed areas. Traction devices will be needed to reach the summit as well as full winter gear! It’s cold folks! Be safe in these conditions hypothermia can set in fast!
Yesterdays snow began falling soon after 7am with temps dropping drastically throughout the day. It quickly began to collect on the grassy areas and roofs of the cabins. The snow tapered off around noon only to start pouring snow around 6pm. Upon waking up and walking to the kitchen I was in store for a great day at LeConte. What will today bring? Sledding? See you at the top!
