Wondering if anyone has any intel on snow levels / snowpack in both the Beartooth Mountains and or Sierra's. Specifically entering at Onion Valley going over Kearsarge Pass into Kings Canyon headed toward the Rae Lakes area. I have trips in those areas the very end of June into early July....hopefully.

From what I have been hearing from PCT hikers, the snow-pack is like non existent this year, even in infamously bad places like Forester's Pass. With the second heat wave coming this week, I think the area you are going will be manageable by the end of the month. But who knows with our crazy weather. It was a 108 around Fresno last week, then it rained, and now it is supposed to be 106 tomorrow.
