    The web cam shows that a lot of snow melted yesterday... I hope there is still a good bit left at our altitude, and a little more to fall before the cold sets in.

    I think there's a high pressure system moving in for the weekend. Should be very cold though!

    You musta missed my posts on the forecast and snow prediction.

    Every time they edit the snow forecast map, Mt Rogers is right at the edge of the action. The low that will bring the snow is streaking by in front of a frigid arctic cold front.

    If you read the Troutdale forecast and subtract 10*F, you get what we'll see at the campground elevation. I'm hoping we'll get away with no backpacks, just pulks.

    I understand. Last year, for the first time, I had to miss the Mt Rogers Winter Hang.
