i am thinking that prolly not. but am hopeful though!
couple more weeks.
Most likely the end of June. Still some big drifts up there.
decided to explore it today before doing switzerland...
from the south trailhead (colorado research center side)
~1.6 miles in:
the whole thing was rideable up to that point. after that every couple hundred feet there were 2 foot (high) drifts on the trail...then a clear run...then a drift...etc.
2 miles in:
i turned around at that point because my feet were wet and my ankles were cold and it only seemed to be getting more snowy (obviously).
ladies and gents, the sourdough glacier!

The dark blue line is the current snow water content. The light blue line is the historical average. This site is very close to the highest elevation point along the sourdough.
