I've generally found the WeatherStreet snow model to be accurate: http://www.weatherstreet.com/city_snow_depth/12815-Brant-Lake-NY-snow-depth.htm

I was there in 2012, and I'm nearly positive it hasn't burned or been removed since. Perhaps the one I saw in 2012 was one that had already been built to replace an older one there? My memory is a...

With a Sunday through Tuesday trip, you won't likely see anyone in that area that time of year.

I think it really depends on what the next month is like in terms of how much/fast the snow melts, plus what the weather is like the weekend you pick. If there's still deep snow in the area, and/or...

Weird. When I click on the link, it takes me to the image itself, not the Imgur portal. It must have something to do with you being on mobile. I'd link it directly in this thread, but it's a 6,000...

I assume you mean the road running west out of Perkins Clearing? It's usually open from some time in May through about the end of hunting season. It does occasionally get closed during that time if...

Yeah, it's pretty variable. I've been on snowshoes for work 6 days a week for the past month and a half or so, mostly in the Ray Brook/Saranac Lake/Gabriels area. In some spots there's bare ground...

I'm not 100% sure that Colvin is actually visible but it's in that general location with Blake- both are in front of (and below) Gothics so they're pretty hard to...

I'll second the Putnam Pond recommendation. Paddle across/around the pond, and hike to Rock Pond or Clear Pond. If you've got lightweight boats, you can even portage to Rock or Clear Ponds to...
