To protect your mental state you might practice getting used to just feeling strangely.

March 17 is the announcement date this year.

Statistics for getting a core permit are getting astronomical.

I last got a permit for Eightmile zone in 2016. I been putting in for the Snow zone every year since, with no luck.  Opted to try early July for a change this year.

I put in for Enchantments zone permit several years ago for mid-July.  Got it and then we had an unusually cold and snowy spring and there was still many feet of snow at Lake Vivian....  so it goes.

I'm resorting to new tactics this year. Hired out. Got a guy makin me some internet-based computer cloud program code hacker type deal. My understanding is that it's supposed to fight their website and ensure I win this year

Maybe it was only the following weekend that was too treacherous?

Could be but it was sliding when we were there next weekend some one opened a hole over the falls too far right. There were other parties who also bailed like we did.

The snow bridged waterfall on Aasgard has killed more than one.   But this hazard isn't unique to Aasgard.

I did get Snow Zone this year  - First week in July.  Obvious this early is going to be very marginal for snow depth.

Hoping for a HOT spring!
