      Hardrockers,

      The Silverton snow report as of the start of May 1st is below. March
      and April have been wetter than normal and the current snow pack (per
      SNOTEL gauges) is roughly 15% greater than average for this time of
      the spring. The last week of April was very cold in the San Juans
      with little melt; however, the climate models continue to predict
      warmer than normal temperatures into the summer.

      I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in the Mountains this summer.
