Route & General Observations

Was anyone curious about what it looks like on the Pass after Monday’s snowfall??? We were…!!!!

It turns out 5-7″ of snow fell along the road, which is now a slushy and wet 2.5″. Higher in elevation, above treeline, estimates are closer to 8-10″, maybe even more in places? This snow is likely a bit drier but we’d guess still on the moist side and settling fast.

**If you head out into the hills PLEASE let us know what you find. Especially if you see any avalanche activity, even small wet stuffs, we want to know about it!
