Is there an average snowline in the Whites right now? The area I'm interested in is the Rt. 302 region South through the Sandwich Range, West of Rt. 16 & East of 93.

TIA!
 
TEO -- down in the southern Whites, the snowline is pretty high and rising... from my back window, there are only vestiges of piles where the man-made snow is deepest on Tecumseh. Silverfox reported an intermittent monorail and some summit slush on Tecumseh Tuesday over 3000 feet. Peakn reported similar conditions on Osceola on Tuesday -- some snow patches over 3500 feet, and mostly snow (packed with a lot of postholes) over 4000 feet. Another hiker reported no snow on Sandwich Dome the end of last week (we've since had the trees coated above 3000 feet, but I doubt that amounted to much).

It's been above freezing at 3800 feet the last couple days, and we finally have had a stretch with no new snow since about Monday. Hope that helps.
