Only if you plan on hiking the higher elevations - we have snow here until Mid-June, usually!

The weather prognosticators really missed it today. It was sunny and in the 60s today.

Most of the towers had issue on Terry Peak yesterday... Including the one I use.

Most snows that happen above 5K MSL won't usually last.
