This Weekend: Hurricane Mountain

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to hike to Hurricane Mountain this weekend. I know it has been a very nice week weather wise this week. The question I have is what the condition of the trail itself is and how I should dress , snowshoes gloves ect.. seeing that Sunday is looking to be in the upper 70's

Thank you for your assistance

Probably:

Shorts and tees, sunscreen and sunglasses. Snowshoes on the pack lower down and on the feet higher up.

If you do Hurricane from rte. 9N you're on a southern exposure. Who knows, maybe there will be no snow at all.

Yeah I'd bring/carry snowshoes with you just in case. Still a fair amount of the white stuff at higher elevations.

What kind of snowshoes do you have? If you have something with decent traction (like MSR Evo Ascents or similar) I think you'd be ok. Could be some ice on/near the summit, which is pretty exposed.

Just regular snowshoes that I got from Dick's. Nothing too advanced
