It's a stunning morning up top. We're above the clouds and the snow is just incomprehensibly pretty. The high yesterday reached 17 degrees. The low was 9 degrees. It was 15 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received another inch of new snow, bringing our total up to 15 inches. The drifts are waist high in places, so be prepared for epic wintry conditions.
The Park Service is doing their best to open up the roads. Check for updates on their twitter feed. Please plan on short hikes, the deep winter conditions make progress about 2-3 times slower than usual. the lodge is still CLOSED and no services are offered. Accept the humility that the mountains offer you.
