For those wondering, the USFS has mysteriously stopped telling us how deep the snow is in the pass. FYI it has nearly 40 and closer to 48" on the flats.
The USFS is supposed to open based on adequate snow cover (they say 30" is enough) but now with 40+" they are still not open!!??
Give em a call 3 783-3242 and ask why they aren't open NOW and why are they waiting until the 23rd. Public call do matter and last year I got Placer opend for a couple of day before it rained based on actual opbservation. I'll take a tape measue and post photos ASAP!
