Wind River Range Area Conditions Update - Shoshone Lake Road

From Emily and Maggie's run on June 5th, 2013. Shoshone Lake Road was more like a waterway than a road. Large drifts still present, but surely melted out now, two weeks later.

An estimate of snow line is about 10,500 feet as of 6/18/13.

Cirque of the Towers- within the last week a party attempted to get into the cirque, but snow on Jack Ass Pass was still too much. It has been reported that another party may have gone in over this past Father's Day weekend, and we may hear a report from them later this week.
