Enclosure Ice

Post by b. »

Hey Thomas,
How soon would you guess the Enclosure Ice would turn from a snow plod to decent ice this spring? I'm hoping to get some early season quietude this year. I know predicting the future isn't really in the mountain guide job description, but it's even harder to do from Bozeman! Thanks!

Hi Brenon,

Normally, the Enclosure Couloir starts icing up at the very bottom and very top around mid-July and then is completely ice by mid-August.

With low snowpack like this year, could be on the sooner side.
