As of 6/20/11, the PCT between Belden(Hwy 70) and Chester(Hwy 36) is still snow covered above 6300-6400 ft getting deeper as one ascends above that elev. In shaded areas the snow depth is obviously greater with drifts of 5-6 ft above that elev. Lots of HOT (90* temps) in the forecast though. I saw no evidence of anyone having hiked through that section yet.
