When Will the Sierra Trails open in 2013?

 That, my friends, relies on external factors, and upon internal factors as well. I have an ongoing log observing the transition of Winter into Spring and finally Summer conditions on the home page of the trail guide.

Here, below, you can leave your thoughts, observations, and analysis through the comments link below.

Resources, in this case being good information, are vital to understand the nature of the evolving conditions. Check the High Sierra Backpacker's Weather Page for both broad and specific weather information. 

The external factors are of course the weather, the internal factors your snow and river fording skills.
