Eastern Sierra Snow Levels

Hi, I am planning a trip to Nevada and California around the 6th or 13th of June.

I want to know if the eastern Sierra snow level is down enough to make it possible to hike up the peaks instead of skiing up the peaks? I have heard that the Sierra Snowpack is very low this year.

The areas I’m interested in are as follows:

  • Slide Mountain area near Lake Tahoe / Incline Village

  • Matterhorn Peak, near Bridgeport, CA

  • Tioga Pass, Mount Conness, Mount Dana area.

Thanks for any information you can provide about the snow levels or conditions as they relate to climbing these peaks. I prefer to hike them rather than ski them. Maybe I need to wait?

I saw spots for Dana peak within the past week - but don’t remember who was the activator. I’m headed down to San Diego tomorrow and had planned on driving up Tioga Pass for a look-see - I also read that Caltrans just opened Tioga pass so you might be hiking instead of skiing :wink:

Good luck and have fun!
