for snow conditions go here http://www.esavalanche.org/

and here http://www.sierraavalanchecenter.org/


They update everyday with forecasts and avalanche observations

The sierras typically have good springs so you may be in for a treat after the recent dry spell

If you have a car rental, Death Valley is pretty kick ass! I am heading that way end of March for some on/off road touring on my motorcycle :thumpsup: . You could spend 4 days alone in DV and not see all the goods. Drive down to Big Pine and head over Bristlecone Pine forrest into DV. Highly recommend.

That will also put you near some good climbing/bouldering outside Bishop as well.

Hey Loche, did you end up doing this trip? How did it go/is it going? Looks like you were coming out April 12. Even with the lame snow year we had this year, that would have been a pretty perfect time to come out, as Hwy 120 opened the weekend after that to the east park entrance at Tioga Pass, so that would have given you access to the goods higher up. If you're still around some of us will be out that way this weekend. Also Sonora Pass just opened, which provides access to yet another zone.
