Current conditions at Green River Lakes

Overview

It makes me very happy to tell everyone that the Wind River Range is totally open! You can make it into Titcomb Basin, with pretty much dry and dusty trails; the Cirque is ready to go (Texas Pass will still have snow). Let's go out and get those miles!

If you are trying to climb Gannett this year, the next few weeks are looking really good; the snow bridge is in play and should be for some time. Bonnie Pass is still snow-covered, so making that hike with crampons or microspikes should be easier than the scree field.

The snow line is hanging around 11,000 feet in the rest of the range. That should mean that all of the Highline is open, and for any trails under that, you can expect small patches of snow, if any at all. Our local mascot, the mosquito, has been coming out to play the last two weeks, and it's only gaining strength, but with the best bug spray and head nets, we will be able to win this war. More to report next week! Like always, feel free to reach out!

  1. I am considering a hike in the Winds from August 7 to 13. How bad do you expect the mosquitoes to be by then? Do you have any idea whether 2024 is at, under or over “normal” for snow melt this year? I really hate mosquitoes.

    Thanks. Bill

    1. Hey Bill,

      The mosquitoes are typically not as bad in August as July, but they still will be around. If you want to go with little to no bugs September is a great month. 2024 is pretty much sitting normal, No crazy melting, or mass amounts of snow to report.
