The high yesterday reached 44 degrees. The low was 36 degrees. It was 43 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation yesterday. There is still some patchy snow left up top. The mountain had some warm weather and sunshine yesterday afternoon, resulting in some good melt. The trails should be in better shape than the past few days, but I would pack some traction devices just in case.The blowdowns on Alum have been getting taken care of by the Park Service's trusty trail crews. That trail is in good shape. I've heard that Rainbow has 2 or 3 blowdowns and that Bullhead is still a tough climb.
