      Below is the snowfall status as of May 1, 2001. Snowfall looks to be about
      normal. However, there was a significant dump during the weekend of May
      4-6. If you want more detailed climate and weather information, I found
      the Snotel site that provides historical and near real time data for
      temperature, total precipitation, and snow water content for many stations
      in the West. Stations located close to Silverton include Molas, Mineral
      Creek, and Red Mountain. The URL is: http://www.wrcc.dri.edu/snotel.html
      I've printed the detailed charts for these three stations since 1991 and
      they will be available in Silverton.

        Hello All,

        Below is the final 2001 Hardrock snow report. The SNOTEL web site
        indicates an earlier than usual snowmelt across the San Juans. I was up in
        the San Juans on June 9-10 and can confirm that the snow has really melted
        in two weeks. I climbed from Cunningham aid station west up to the
        Dives-Little Giant traverse without stepping in snow. The traverse was
        about 75% covered and melting very fast under hot blue skies. What a day!

        I'm looking forward to seeing you all in July.
