I feel as though Al Gore boned me.

He promised global warming. I thought, "great idea -- it will make for an awesome Summit".

If we do Black Bear it will be like driving through a snow tube for 3 hours. Like driving through the inside of a giant ping-pong ball.

Thanks Al.:boohoo:

this was last year at Black Bear Pass...I'm sure there'll be more this year due to a better winter and the lack of warmth...BRING CHAINS!!! in one of the routes last year there was an FJ that had to be retrived from a trail which had snow on it.

the Telluride Race Team had an event on a glacier and kinda cool to see the course as we wheeled by it.

it'll be a bummer if BB Pass will be closed due to snow:mecry:

oh well, there's other trails:clap:

So given that the trail i ran today still had 5 foot drifts on it, on the south side of the mountain, there will most certainly be snow up there still. The trails peak between 11,000 and 13,100. The only thing that we can hope is that NFS digs them out, but plan on there being snow.

stupid question: does snow like that "cave in"? I feel caustrophobic just looking at the pic!
Usually it's when heavier snow is layered on top of a lighter/softer snowpack. The stuff in that shot looks a lot like what we call Sierra Cement. Heavy, wet snow, rather than powder. But there's really no telling until you're there.

hehe, that should really be no concern to you as you'll be sittin' up higher than the snow banks in your Fj.
