</div>You’re probably pretty safe with that schedule, but there is historical snotel data for multiple locations along the CDT…. Though, it’s difficult to interpret since these data points are very localized, and there’s a lot of variance from year to year. One place that does have this all conveniently summarized is postholer.com. Look for the “Snow Conditions” link. You have to register for the site to check it out though.

First of all, thanks to all who helped me along the way this year with advice and counsel on this list. I started at Crazy Cook and made it to Monida Pass near Lima Montana. So I am just a lowly section hiker with the Montana section left to go next summer. I want to pick the likely best date to start at Monida Pass at I 15 to go NOBO to Waterton. I'm thinking the last week of June. With only about 750 miles left, I figure it'll take me about 6 weeks. I'm hoping to avoid snow in higher elevations in southern Montana, and assume a mid to late August finish should be fine on the North end. Any thoughts? Any suggestions for where I can look up when the snow is usually gone in the first part of Montana from Lima up to Anaconda? Thanks.
