Conditions on Lowe's Path

As of today, all trails are unbroken, covered with 1 – 2 feet of new snow;  snow shoes needed everywhere, above and below tree line; be aware cairns and trail signs are snow covered so navigation is difficult and could be hazardous; be very aware of avalanche danger everywhere, especially in ravines; check with USFS for up to date avalanche conditions; use of avalanche beacons is encouraged.

For current conditions, call (603) 466-2438 between 9am & 9pm.
