    Anyone been through the higher passes yet? We'll have small bikes with a chase truck (no camping gear on the bikes).

    Seems like less snow this year than last. Anyone with first hand knowledge?

    Much less snow than last year or two. No snow at Lake Tahoe levels, I’ll try to over Monitor Pass this week (8314’) and see what’s on the ground there if that helps.

    Thanks guys, looks like the only snow is just around Jarbidge. Late June should be great bar any late snow storms.

    There were several NVBDR riders at the BBQ place in Tonopah yesterday. The route looks busy.

    No snow on any pass but i skipped kingston. Was 38 degrees and raining in Austin so i’m sure it was snowing up higher. Plenty of mud out there though, have fun.
