Any response is good, even if its dipped in B.S.: CalTrans only plows the highways (I5, 89...) as far as I know. SRS is a funding issue but the bigger problem is, as Shasta G observed, the funds spent on litigation to preserve ancient dams that provide no real benefit to the county.

15,000 average # of summit bids a year. The number does not include day trips where no summit pass is purchased. I'm sure I'm alone on this but there are a few outlaws who end up above 10k on a day trip without purchasing a pass :thumpsup:

Thanks again for the support. Good to hear you hit up Brewer I was tempted that weekend but the warm temps sent me to the lake instead.

The supe mentioned that Jerry Brown is asking Caltrans to defund plowing - don't know if that is for specific regions or not or statewide. I asked him to forward me more specific information so that I could follow up with my state senate and assembly reps (Sen. Hancock and Assy. Swanson).

As far as # of summit bids, they can see from Nov through mid-July exactly how many are launching from Bunny or the ski resort and take that as a bare minimum number and inflate it by a multiplier (let's say 1.5) to estimate day trippers. It's not that hard to take 1 day and send an intern down with MS Excel to go through the records and come up with an estimate.

Temps were warm on 6/16-18 and riding was decent, not epic, not bad. Such an easy fast walk to get to snow, and such a straight shot up the mountain, from Brewer. So much more direct than Avy Gulch or West Face!

County Supes approved budget authority for plowing the Everett and Castle Lake access roads. Big ups for human powered recreation!
