Re: Typical Badger Spring snow-blockage dates?

I've seen snow at Badger Spring as early as Mid-October and in other years the first snow there is at the end of December or the beginning of January.

The mid part of the Tikaboo climb is very dangerous if there is a layer of ice under the snow on the steep, rocky trail. Crampons would be a real help for that part of the trail under those conditions. Also, I've seen night-time temperatures drop as low as -32F in that area (rarely). If you decide to make the climb, take your time and be very careful!!!

Usually a SUV can make it to Badger Springs or beyond into mid-November or December. In the spring, you can usually get to the springs by late March or mid-April in most years. Some years it is possible to get as far as the springs almost all winter.
