Deep snow starts .5 miles from the CA line (1689.5) and continues for 4 miles, sometimes on steep hillsides. It is then patchy (everything from clear to deep and in between) until past Mt. Ashland (about 1710).
Patchy, but safe, snow starts again past Hwy 66 (1733). From Hwy 140 (1771) to almost Olallie Lake (about 2043) the trail is under a solid 2 to 10 feet.
By actual observations and emails with Scott Parks, the snow maps on postholer.com UNDER estimate the snow levels, sometimes by a lot.
