WABDR current conditions?

Hey guys I'm antsy to do an early season ride. With the low snowpack this year I'm curious to know what's currently happening on this route? I realize there is likely still snow up there but then again maybe not??? Can anyone fill me in? I'll be starting from the Nighthawk crossing (North to South)

cheers.

I don't think that ^^^ worked as Greg intended, the first page on the WABDR thread has all the snow meters and updated info. I doubt it's rideable this early though; even with a light snow year there will be snow in the high areas for a couple more months. The north leg has stretches around 7000' ASL. I live in Cashmere, haven't had time to run up towards the Haney Meadows/Lion Rock area. Maybe this weekend, and I'll see where the snow level is.

There is an elk closure at Cleman mountain until May 1, I think.

I bet the highline is open in your region, though.

The first map, on my computer, is just a map. No links. The second one works fine. Odd.

Everyone is all excited with the warm temps around the Sound this winter. Just because we had it easy down here, doesn't mean that it didn't snow up there. Things may open up a little earlier than last year in some spots, but not everywhere.

Actually there is very little snow in a lot of sections this year, that's why the forest service has announced closures for single track trails in clear elum, naneum and other areas to protect trails that are typically covered in snow this time of year
