8233Re: Best late season dates?
- Apr 1, 2010One thing to consider in October, it can be more than the "fly" that's stuck. Mid October 2004; a storm started on the 14th and by the 18th there was four feet of snow here in the backcountry.
As I remember it over two dozen people were hauled out of the backcountry by various agencies.
The storm was forecasted well ahead of time.
On extended trips in late fall it is worth while having some sort of equipment to receive forecasts; weather radio, sat phone etc.
