On July 18 2011, I did an overnight on a trail that links up with the PCT about ten miles south of Stevens Pass. I was heading south on the Surpirse Creek Trail which intersectes with the PCT at Surprise Lake. At Surprise and Glacier Lakes there is still 5-6 ft of snow and possible even more at Piepers Pass. Looks like another 2 weeks untill this section will be melted out enough to find patchy sections of trail. I thought the PCTers coming from the south could use an update considering they may have a challenging summer coming upon them as they make their way north. Good luck to you all.
