Bear Lake Snow Conditions

Bear Lake Trailhead 3_29

Bear Lake Trailhead on March 29th. Around ranger station everything is melted down to pavement. From the snow starting at trailhead and on up, all trails are snow packed. Very slick conditions going to Bear Lake and this is especially true in the morning when it is colder. The ice is thinning on Bear at inlet, outlet and the north shoreline.
