trail conditions from tram to San Jacinto summit

Postby davewebb15 » Thu Mar 23, 2017 4:17 pm

Hello. I am wanting to hike from the tram to the summit of San Jacinto peak sometime next week. I completed this walk one year ago with microspikes and a minumum of postholing. I am curious as to the current conditions that I could expect to encounter. It sounds like snowshoes would not be helpful given the current state of things. I have the direct winter route mapped out on gps from last year so navigation should not be a problem. Would microspikes be adequate, or should I bring crampons and an ice tool? Thanks and have a nice day.

Sorry for the late reply, I hope this gets to you before your trip.
I think you can leave your crampons and ice ax at home. Snowshoes might come in handy if the snow softens up because of warm conditions, but they won't be necessary.
