 Details

The Cordova Pass road winter closure is about 3.5 miles below the pass. I followed an old sled track for the remainder of the way. Beyond that the snow was fairly deep and sugary and made for slow going. I stayed high over minor bumps, gaining and losing several hundred feet along the way rather than sidehilling in deep powder along the trail (which wasn't discernible anyway). Above treeline I followed the standard route which was pretty much dry as a bone. About 14mi/4000ft RT.

Did you come from Cuchara or take the service road to winter turn off?
