      Greetings Hardrockers,

      Below is the last planned Silverton snow report for 2008. This looks
      like the third snowiest year since the pains of the Hardrock birth.
      It's also a very wet year and I believe the course and streams will
      have plenty of water.

      As you know, the 2008 Hardrock will not be cancelled because of snow.
      I'm going up to Silverton tomorrow to watch the creeks rise. I
      intend to micro-manage the snow melt to ensure that every flake melts
      from the trails by July 11. If you're in Silverton, stop by and we
      can micro-manage, complain, commiserate, prevaricate, and generally
      stand in awe of the San Juan's beauty together.

      See you in Silverton.
