Mount Waterman report from yesterday:

http://mtwaterman.org/

It seems like the San Gabriel Mountains received twice as much snow as the San Bernardino Mountains this past week, which should even things out a bit between the areas for the season.

Thanks for the link Kathy.

3-22-2011 – 6 pm

Hello from Mt Waterman,

Well folks we picked up a good 4-6+ feet of snow. The Road is closed and we have no idea when they will have it open.  At worst we would run Friday – Sunday from 9 – 4pm.  When we get word that the gates to the road are open we will let you know.


I'm skeptical at the amount but I'm sure they got a plenty. Wow.

PostPosted: Tue May 17, 2011 11:12 am    Post subject: San G - 10,00 ft Ridge - Conditions Reply with quote

So I have tentetively scheduled our hiking group to do the 9 peaks loop (Angeles Forest to Vivian Creek) on June 11-12 staying over night at shields flat. I have seen the pictures of the reports being snow at 8500 and above significant snow at 10k. How doable will me trip be with basic hiking gear. That is still 3.5 weeks away.

Also do you guys think i will run into any isses for Whitney, we are hiking that July 14-17 out of Cottenwood lakes and out the Portal. This is two months away. Supposedly July is the prime month to hike but maybe not this year?

I am trying to weigh my options to see if I need additional snow / ice gear.

Thanks,
Loren

Loren,

You won't be getting to 10,000' Ridge if you're doing The Nine Peaks, but you will get over 10,000' feet in multiple spots along the San Bernardino Peak Divide.  

Here's my TR from about a week ago:  http://sangabrielmnts.myfreeforum.org/about3808.html

Anything with northern exposure has significant snow above 9000'.  Even in exposed areas, there is still significant snow above 10,000' -- but with big melted out portions.

A few weeks hence, things will be more melted out; the current set of storms won't change that.

I didn't need any specialized equipment on my trip, but snow shoes would have been nice in sections.

Less likely as we get toward June, but if you go on a cold day, things could be icy.  If it is icy, you might want some type of gear.

HJ

Yeah I saw your post. We are going accross the divide. Good to hear, I guess I will have to keep an ear/eye out. the trickiest part would be on the way up and down from San G but that is mostly south faceing, it is just from the pictures I have seen there is still quite a bit of snow there.

Just based on past experience, you'll probably run into some drifts between the two Bernardinos.

I just got my permit (Angeles Oaks to Vivian Creek and Camping at Shield Flat) Hopefully this sun will keep that snow melting although it is not that hot.

You'll want there to be some snow at least though, so you don't have to carry drinking water.

For sure last year we carried a lot of water. Got some at the stream half way to San G from Vivian Creek and not again until just above manzinta flat. We coudlnt find the spring that was on the oppsite side of the ridge from dollar lake (near diablo peak?).

Take a look at this map of the area.  I've marked all the water points from Angelus Oaks to Vivian Creek.
A = Manzanita Spring which is just down the side trail from Manzanita Flat.  Normally, it's "dry" (just damp mud), but I would bet it's running this year.
B = Limber Pine Spring which is just up the drainage from the point of a switch back in the trail.  It will almost 100% chance be running.  It usually melts out even when nearby areas are all snow covered.
C = Trail Fork Springs.  There will probably be a lot of snow around here.  The spring may be hard to find but will definitely be flowing.  Look for a small pipe in the willows north of the trail.
D = High Meadow Springs.   You have to find a faint, steep side trail leading to down to the springs.  This is past Shields Flat, so I wouldn't think it would be all that useful to you.
E = High Creek
F = the little creek at Halfway
Past "F", you'll hit Vivian Creek which should be running its entire length.

Honestly, if it were me, I'd bring a good stove and melt snow.  That'd be your best bet for Shields Flat which doesn't have a water source right at the camp.

Great map thanks. Yeah i figured we can melt snow I was just not sure how clean/deep it will be. D is the one we were looking for last time but it was not helping how far down the hill we had to go.

Shields Flat is about 10,500'.  I think you'll find plenty of snow.  The trail traverses around the north side of Shields Peak as you go east towards the flat.  That north side should have plenty of deep drifts.  Dig off the surface layers, get the relatively clean snow underneath, and melt it in your pot.  Once it's boiled, it's safe to drink even if there are a few "floaties" (pine needle bits and such) in it.  If you're really worried about it, bring a coffee filter and pour the water through the filter after it has boiled.  The filter will get rid of the "floaties".

As for high meadow springs, the spot of greenery marked by "A" on this map is where the spring is.  Very reliable.  Probably not too helpful if you're staying at Shields, but good to know about for future reference.  The faint side trail takes off from about "B" and steeply looses about 300' of elevation to get to the spring.  The trail petered out about 100' above the spring last time I was there.  I just zeroed in on the greenery.

Found this on the SGW bulletin Board. Seriously considering buying microspikes and hot food is a must! I think poles can sumplment an iceaxe and spikes for crampons. I wonder how much more tiem i need to acount for.

Was up to Limber Pine Bench on Saturday, May 28th. Trail is clear to the trail junction at John's Meadows/Columbine Springs(some downed trees block the trail, in spots) but small snow patches dot the trail to the final 1/8 mile to the actual campsites. The final 1/8 miles is completely on snow up the final ridge. Limber Pine Bench, itself, is free of snow, but heavy snow fields completely cover the trail both to the springs and all upper elevations. I would bring crampons and ice axe - the upper level of snow was soft in the afternoon but hard underneath. Our Scout Troop saw 25 people on the trail, but all but three were going only to Limber Pine Bench. Be prepared to melt snow for water - it is a major slog over to the springs just to get water. Another idea is to access the small stream of water coming down from the springs just before you ascend the final snowridge to the camp. Good luck and safe hiking.

There was up to 4ins at times on San Gabriel Peak today. The snow level started way down at Red Box. But this was first thing in the a.m. It was already melting by the time I left. But it was awesome to roll out at 32 degrees, in snow, with clear views in every direction!

Went with Tony to go check conditions in the morning the other day before heading to school...


BP NEF


Tony going up a chute along the North Baldy Route on BP to bypass some bad rock


Looking for ice


Covered in snow



Ice was VERY thick, very good. Some bashing and cleaning required to get to the good stuff. This should all be in condition either in a week or two, or after a REALLY good dump plus some time for avalanches to plow the road and consolidation, freeze thaw etc.

THE  LOOK : FROM 39 NEAR EAST FORK
   the view from 39 near East Fork River

I know, there must be lots of pissed off mountain snow people out there for right now, so be patient, mother nature is unpredictable, you can have a white blanket cover Baldy soon.
sorry.... Hell is not the only hot place, Baldy is expected to hit 60...... 666

OK, then its the 'be grateful' response. Los Angeles 113% of normal rain fall.
San Francisco at 65% of normal....Los Angeles has had 4 inches more than San Francisco! Sierra Nevada at 10% of normal snowpack.

"This last map clearly shows the Sierra having very little snow compared to normal with below-normal snowfall from central Idaho to Utah and parts of Colorado. The one anomaly in the Southwest is that the mountains of Arizona are above normal. "

So are we going to be seeing some Arizona trip reports? Very Happy

Don't worry, I'm sure it'll kick in later.

Love the heat.  

Topped out at 89 on Bommer Ridge Sunday.  Been riding all week (vacation) and wore one summer layer all day/everyday in Laguna Beach.

Hi all,

Myself and a friend are thinking of driving up the 2 this weekend. Can anyone tell me where snowline is on north-facing slopes? I know the Waterman ski slopes didn't open this year, but are they free of snow? We probably don't want to break out the snowshoes...

Thanks
