4 60-ish females planning to do this 6/25/16 - challenging, but we can do it. Unless there are too many/too deep snow fields left? What is the situation up there this year? Thanks!!!!

< BR>Hi there,

My partner and I (both 33yrs) just returned from the Three Sisters. We climbed up on June 18th in the rain, and woke up to 2 inches of snow on June 19th.

It rained a lot which made the climb difficult as it was very slippery when the dirt turned into mud. It snow stormed all night, and it was very windy and foggy which didn't provide much of a view.

Not to discourage a climb, but there is certainly still snow up there, and at times we lost our footing and slid down a few feet. We made it to the last camp location and set up camp in the trees, and very sheltered. We used walking poles for support to walk. The next morning, we decided to pack up and head back down, instead of finishing the summit.

I would hike it with sunshine in the forecast, and mid July. If it has rain in the forecast, it will most certainly snow up there.

It said best hiking time mid July start... they weren't kidding.
