    Angels Staircase area conditions

    Rode Martin Lake Tr to Cooney Lake then down Foggy Dew.
    Consistent snow past Matin Lake intersection and .25 miles
    hike/bike up to Cooney. Fun but a decent amount of riding
    in snow. The normal Angels loop would likely be a sufferfest
    in deep snow.

    PCT through hikers are having a hard go... some have come off at Hyas lk in the last few days to pick up snowshoes. Reports are of 3' of snow at Dutch Miller gap.

    So far it's looking like the high country is shutting down early this season.

    ETA: doesn't look any better up north of here...
    Hikers stumble near end of long journey

    Rode Chikamin Creek in the Leavenworth/Lake Wenatchee area last weekend. The upper parts of the FS 6210 above the basalt pass TH was pretty snowy, and Chikamin tie was a bobsled course with about 6 inches of snow. Chikamin creek from the intersection with Minnow Ridge on was pretty much hero-dirt. From the amount of snow at the top of FS6210, all of the upper stuff higher up in the Mad Lakes area is probably unrideable without a fat bike.
