Spring hazards and trail closure…

Recent rain and warm weather have washed out snow bridges and melted long stretches of the Sherburne ski trail making it necessary to walk down from Hermiit Lake. Additionally, flowing water and sustained warm temperatures have finally brought our spring icefall and crevasse hazards into bloom.   Sluice Ice and the Center Bowl look ready to launch car-to-bus sized blocks of ice into Lunch Rocks and the floor of the Ravine. If you are bringing Mom up tomorrow, be sure to stay away from these hazards. We’ll be issuing an advisory in the morning and posting pictures tonight.
