Had an epic day today exploring the high country. Found a lot of snow but the day was perfect. Upper 60’s, not a could in the sky, no wind. Went up Yankee Boy Basin first. Then went down to Silverton and took County Rd 2 up to Animas Forks. Last went up Hurricane Pass. All of these were basically drive to where the snow blocks the road then hike in. Going to post a few pictures now.

This massive washout was the main blockage on Yankee Boy.

Yankee Boy, Animas, & Huricane

Awesome pics - thanks for posting! Any idea if Imogene, Black Bear and Poughkeepsie are making progress?


From what I read they are planning to do Ophir first starting in mid-June followed by Imogene and then Black Bear. Ophir is open to the Summit from the 550 side. Here is a picture of the entrance to Imogene and it does not appear they have started anything on it yet. I have not heard anything on Poughkeepsie. If I had not broken my strut I would have done some more exploring today but alas I am grounded.

We were on Yankee Boy Saturday, could not get near the switch backs, drove thru cut path of 10 foot drifts. Actually had snowed there earlier in the day it appeared. A lot of avalanches on the way up. This area appears to have really been hit hard with them.
