Hi All: Anyone know if it's too early to head to Lover's this weekend? Temps look mild but I don't know if it would be too wet right now?

There is no reward without risk. Check it out & report back.

LOL...OK...what is the relative "dampness" of the Loaf or Phantom this time of year? I'm hoping if I drive all the way out there Fri. and Lovers is a soggy mess, I won't be shut down completely?

It's never to early for lovers.. You just have be a little more Burt Bronson in the cold season.....I've climbed at the leap since '78 and every season has something to enjoy. ( maybe Knott july and August) unless you like climbing early or into the evening.

No such thing as too early at Lover's Leap:

A virgin? Sounds too early to me. Valley is better bet :-)

@Ron...that was my plan, assuming it's not a waterfall...I guess I can try Phantom/Loaf unless they would still be snowed in(hope not)

You'll be fine.
There is some snow at Lover's, but really not that much. Definitely no snowshoes required.
Sugarloaf is totally snow free as of last weekend (3/30).

Watch the snow levels with the storm later this week, but you should be ok unless it gets really cold.
