    Default Resurrection Pass Snow Conditions

    Anyone know what the snow conditions are like on resurrection pass heading in from Cooper Landing? We are planning on hiking into the Juno Lake area this weekend and wondering what to expect.

    I think you should expect "ICE" and water on the trail and Mosquitoes, with steady drizzle rain, and Temp. in the mid 40's during the day, and dropping to mid 30's over night.

    Any updates on the trail? We were up a few weeks back and there was plenty of snow between Romig and Juneau lake cabin. Hoping to ride bikes a bit further than that in a few days.

    Can't speak to resurrection pass, but I was up the Fuller lakes trail Friday. We ran into snow about a foot deep still between the lower and upper Fuller Lakes. We left the snowshoes in the vehicle so we turned around and just enjoyed the afternoon watching the lower lake.

    Thumbs up

    In case anyone is wondering, there is still snow drifted over about s of the trail through the pass. We did not bring snow shoes but really wished we would have for about 2 miles. We went through the pass mid-day and we were breaking through the snow constantly. We ended up side hilling it for about a mile to a mile and a half. If the weather is nice up top for the next week or two, that should take care of all the heavy snow spots through the pass I am guessing.

    How was the trail for about 10 miles from the Hope end? I'm guessing pretty sloppy still?

    It was a little sloppy but not too bad, got a lot worse after Caribou Creek cabin once you started to gain elevation before East Creek Cabin.
