Start date for NOBO

Post by mooseonthetrail » Jun 08 2019 5:24 pm

Thinking of doing this trail next year. From a sub tropical part of Australia, but have a lot of experience with dry country/desert hiking. Only experience with snow was walking the AT.

Timing? Happy to have snow on the peaks or a possible sprinkle, not interested in postholing etc. I know it will depend on what the snowfall was like in a given year, but what time frame should I be looking at for a NOBO?

Mid-March, give or take a couple of weeks based on the recent trend. Mid-March was a bit early this year, pretty late last year.
The bear went over the mountain to see what he could see.
