Title: Earliest snow in the northern Rockies...
Post by: optimisticchris on May 11, 2019, 01:49:41 pm
My wife & I are working out the logistics for a cross-country bike trip. We had hoped to go east to west but are not necessarily fixed on that.
Recent life events are causing us to reconsider our original starting date and postpone the start date until a little later in the year. So my direct question is:
Looking at the northwest part of the USA (Oregon, Washington, Idaho & Montana), when does snow typically arrive in those states making it difficult to get across the mountain passes on the Trans America Trail/Lewis and Clark Trail/Northern Tier routes.
We appreciate any input you might have or links to help finding answers.
