      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.
