Snow Levels on Mt. Hood

Anyone been up around the Goat Mountain area or Abbot Road in the last week. How far up can you get without running into snow? The pass cams all look clear, but I know there is going to be drifts in the heavily wooded areas. This weekend is looking good for a ride...

I was just up Abbot/4610 today.

I hit snow that gave me a hard time just before the road (if it's still there) that goes up to the top of Sqaw Mt.
My SPOT check in shows I was just below 3,800' (While I was stuck in the snow and stopped for a bit it seemed like a good time to let family know I wasn't dead., hehe).


Note the lack of needing to use the side stand to take the picture....

Thanks CatFlap, cool pic! Looks like I should stick to the coast range for another month or so...

Looks like you were prepared to spend the night anyway Catflap.

I usually hit that snow @ 3800 too, until probably mid May. Then you need a bit of dry weather to let it all dry out, to get all the way through.

Check back through "Around the Hood" thread, i've posted snowy photos of Abbot there before. Still a great trip to the snow this time of year anyway.

Yeah I spent the night up there. A little spot down by a river. I've been to a few times. Picked the wrong night though, it happened to dump rain on me in the middle of the night. I pick the one night in an otherwise nice week that it's gonna rain.......

Yeah coast range is a safe bet. Should be very little if any snow out there now. Last couple times I've been out there I didn't find any.
