San Juan Snow Conditions - April Update

With the arrival of April, we have entered the "end game" of the 2023-2024 snow season in the San Juan mountains. If we'd like to label this snow season, perhaps a "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" description is suitable. The current snowpack at the Red Mountain Pass remains just at the long-term average (64") and the temperature/ precipitation outlook through May is for equal chances of above, below and normal temperatures and precipitation across southwest Colorado. The current snowpack and weather forecast appear to be "not too much, not too little, but just right (average)". Thus, we have high confidence that there won't be an egregious amount of snow on the Hardrock course this year but at the same time, the fire hazard/danger should also be minimized. No wildflower prediction yet. Of course, much can happen weather-wise in April and May...
