We are looking at hiking Windsor trail to lake Catherine and spending the night there and hiking Santa Fe baldy the following day. I'm curious as to what the weather could/ should be in late June. I went to Philmont (North West NM) about 4 years ago in late June with my son and his troop, we stayed in the southern part of Philmont and did tooth of time. We didn't see any snow and over 7 days only had one really chilly night. Are there any resources that would be able to give me advice on hiking those trails in late June? Specifically, what kind of weather to expect and what trail conditions should be like in late June. I've heard weather / snow conditions in June can be unpredictable, I am trying to figure out appropriate attire and equipment for myself and my family. About 5 years ago my daughter and I did the Windsor trail from Santa Fe ski resort to about 3/4 of the way to lake katherine before spending the night on the trail and returning back to our car the following morning. We did this in late April. We were prepared equipment wise, and I'm not really wanting to bring a ton of cold weather gear if not needed. But I've heard lake Katherine could still have snow in late June, and it could get into the 30's or lower at night. Is this info accurate??
