    Its still closed, I heard that is was raining down there and the snow was down to 2.5 feet. looking at the weather camera there were drops of water on it so it does not look good. its all second hand info and as much as you guys, i hope im wrong as well

    Drove the Seward yesterday and turnagain pass area is a complete mess. Melt down to asphalt on the roads, bare patches on the mountains, and raining like a thunder storm.

    Sounds like there was 25" of snow and a big dump got us over the 30" mark, but.. it started to rain and melted everything off the bottom of the mountain. Nice thing about Turnagain is we can get enough snow out of one big storm. Now we just need that storm.
