After what was looking to be an early season on Mount St Helens is turning out to be otherwise. Two weeks ago - from April 5th 2010 - the snow pack at the June Lake Snotel site was only 46 inches. The elevation there is 3,440 feet. As of April 6, 2010 snow depth is now 111 inches.
Current Forest Road conditions in Gifford Pinchot National Forest indicate that Road 83 is closed at the junction with Road 8303, the road to Ape Cave. Seasonal snow plowing ended at the beginning of April for the season.
