    With the warm weather, lots of snow is gone.
    Might be the year it all goes :)

    Nice pics!

    In the NW, it never leaves - for instance, on top of Mt. Hood. The US Ski team practices there in June!
    I once flew into Portland in June to give a talk to The Earth Stove dealers (long ago), and the plane goes right by the MT. I drove up and walked into the snow later!

    Here in New England, Mt. Washington definitely loses all it's snow - it's only 6,000 ft or so.

    I live in Toulouse, France.
    It is true for the central and the western parts of the Pyrénées – it is not true for the eastern part where snow has melted down recently.
    But, snow accumulation is just unbelievable in some parts of the mountains : STILL 3 mètres (12 ft) of snow in Lac D’Ardiden – 2450 meters high.
    It means that I am ready to go for a walk in the snow in JULY. It will be the Fist time ever.
