Ice begins to melt on Ball Crag

Summer has returned to the summits once again after a brief visit from winter over the past few days. The rime ice coating the summits has mostly melted away, and temperatures are expected to climb to near 50 degrees! (Yes that is Summer weather up here) With the mild weather and with customer appreciation day today on the auto road we expect to see many visitors enjoying the summit.

Looking ahead, it looks like Summer is here to stay as mild temperatures stay in the forecast for the foreseeable future. Rain chances will stay low as well, as a strengthening ridge of high pressure moves into the area tomorrow. So if you were unable to make it up to the summit this weekend, any day this week looks pretty great!
