I am getting conflicting reports about snow down in zion. we are interested in doing some scrambling up cowboy ridge and lady mountain this weekend. Can anyone deny/confirm whether these are currently dry heading into the weekend? Spencer Weiler

Why wouldn't you just call the ranger station? Ryan N

We did Angels Landing on Christmas Eve and it was covered in snow, as was much of the park. I imagine conditions are the same or with more snow now.

The rangers will definitely have the best and most up to date information on weather conditions. You'll probably want something for traction on your feet either way.

You could also call zion adventure company...they would tell you...pure conjecture on my part but lady mountain is the most likely to have lots of snow. Cowboy ridge is in the sun and exposed i would expect it to be pretty bare Rob Warden, Space Lizard
