Just thought I’d post it here too. 🙂 Any other road jumpers out there? I’d like to do the infamous one on the way to Mt Baker someday.

September 12, 2005 at 5:18 pm #583047 nomad 288 Posts Yup, it does look reminiscent of the Baker gap. I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled around Montana for potential road gap locations, but most of the roads don’t seem to get enough snow coverage or are in flat areas. Maybe Jack and I will set up the baker gap when I’m in washington around christmastime and post some ski porn here. The home run gap at baker is another classic worthy of mentioning – maybe a pic can be found online. The Tahoe gaps always seem like true classics. The one you posted looks like a lot of work to build. Is anyone getting september patches? We had flurries over the weekend in the mountains . 😀 September 14, 2005 at 10:19 pm #583048 butryon 47 Posts we had snow around 6000 ft, but nothing was sticking until about 9000. this was in the sawtooths around the challis and stanley area. we froze camping, good thing there are natural hot tubs in the area.

September 15, 2005 at 9:25 pm #583050 butryon 47 Posts it was about an hour or two from goldbug called Basin creek(only good when the waters low), and then we soaked at sunbeam. we tried to get to slate creek but there is a massive fire burning through the boulder whiteclouds so the road is closed. the weather was so cold that we were all alone—private mtn.hot tubs—they make ya drink more than usual. goldbug is the best though, i just don’t know how the riding is around there. if you know the trails in that area give me some info. i have been doing a lot of trial and error riding up there with lots of hike a bike and bomber downhills.
