    Default Summit snow conditions

    Have any of you Delta Junction guys been out riding in the Summit Lake area lately? I'd appreciate a snow report. The weathercam makes the snow cover look awfully sparse.

    Am I eligible to reply? Two weeks ago we were there during a ground blizzard and the hill tops were bare and the flats were getting crusty. There's been nothing but more wind since then. Maybe Maclaren area might still be good? Or back behind the "Tit" at Summit?

    It's in pretty rough shape.
    About the only powder to be found is south of Paxson in the trees.

    Just looked at the NOAA weather model disscussion and they are talking about continued drier than normal conditions for at least the rest of the month from what I could comprehend.

    Heck even T-Pass has recieved no measurable snow since the end of January.

    Not sure what pattern were in but it needs to lift in a hurry

    Maclaren lodge recieved 60-80 mph winds most of last week

    Default South of Eureka

    I've been to the area south of Eureka the last couple weekends off the trail to the Nelchina glacier There is still a little bit of loose (though sugary) snow amoungst the spruce and in a few protected areas in the Nelchina river basin. It is also cool to see the Nelchina Glacier close up. I plan to go to the area again this weekend.
