    Conditions in the La Sals

    So I was in Moab this weekend and saw how much snow the La Sals are still holding and it has me worried for my Kokopelli trail trip in late April.
    Locals,
    Historically, is Kokopelli clear by the end of April (I will be going through there on the 24th)?
    Anyone,
    Where's a good place to get a forecast for that area of the trail, I have a feeling just typing in Moab, UT in weather.com will not suffice. Also, anyone know of a webcam that shows the La Sals? I would like to see with my own eyes the overall look of conditions.

    For skiing?

    I was there a while ago in early Sept. and there was still 2-3ft of snow on the saddle and in the deeper shadows so don't count on it being very ridable at higher elevations. Checking as suggested below should give you an idea if you can ride some of the lowers trails.

    Last year it opened around may 7th.

    Last year we went on May 14th and were told it had just opened the week before. I don't know if there is more or less snow this year.

    Lots and lots of moisture up there. We've had several good dumpings in the last few weeks, today included.

    UPS is very doubtful, as is Koko. LPS is a maybe at best.

    I assume your doubtful and maybe diagnoses is for the time I'm going to be there right?
