Road opened today at about 11am. Chronicles of Gnaria and I are scheduled to meet there for a tour around the top. There will be severe avy danger in some of the more choice spots, so we will avoid them and probably do more skinning and some very short turns in two little areas off the ridge road that tolerate heavy snow well. They are neither steep nor long, but they will be full of fresh POWDER.
We should be meeting around 9am at the lower visitors center and driving up from there. The road reports slide damage closing one lane in spots, I can hardly wait to see the recent weather destruction. And there is somewhere in the vicintiy of 3 feet of fresh snow since the road was last open for visitors.
