Hi. I am new to this forum. I am coming to NH in early May (May 8 &9) to climb Mt. Washington. I had climbed it a few times in the early 70's and again in '05 but never at this time of year so I was wondering what the trail conditions will be like. Will there still be snow?
Thank you

In early May you'll encounter snow on many routes. It's too early to tell, but the west side of the mountain may have more options to minimize snow travel.

Thank you for the info. I'm really looking forward to coming back to NH
