Road Access: Forest Road #1131 is open and clear to Boulder Ridge trailhead.
|The rock step below Boulder Ridge is melted out.|
Trail Status: Boulder Ridge Trail was clear of snow to the meadow. There were approximately 20 trees down across the trail, and several wet and muddy sections. Brush along the sides of the trail was overgrown and thick in places. The rock step at the base of the ridge was melted out, but water was running down most parts of it. A fixed static line is still present on the rock step.
Snow Level: 4200 feet Snow Observations: Soft corn snow existed on most aspects and elevations. Small sun cups and runnels were beginning to develop below 7500 feet.
