    If I wasn't heading out of town this weekend I would take my rock skis and shorts and do some spring skiing up there. :D Sounds like they plan to have the road open by the 4th of July.

    True. Roads were in great shape, I had first tracks up after the road crew finished grading it, so it was a little squirrely in places, especially on the Willow side.

    Took the Multi up the pass today in a light rain with the street tires. It was a little greasy in spots, but made it up and back with no drama.

    It was a beautiful day once the sun came out.

    Pass still closed today, and worse yet, the Archangel Road is closed at the bridge. No idea what that is about.

    Cool! The 511 website said they were going to open it today;guess they weren't BS'ing. My neighbor and I are going to ride through on Saturday. Staying home tonight/tomorrow, and let the traffic slacken a bit.

    The bridge was deemed unsafe for cars to come thru. So it will be closed until they fix it. You can ride between the cement blocks and theres a perfect camping spot just on the other side of the bridge.
