    Default Hatcher's Pass

    Anyone been up to Hatcher's Pass yet this year? I know it normally isn't rideable this time of year but thought it might be ready by Memorial Day weekend the way the weather is going.

    Any thoughts???

    We went up in late June last year and there was still snow 6' deep at the top of the pass on the road. But the trails were dry and doable. I think you're right that it will be open much earlier this year, the way things are going.
    "If snowmachiners would adopt the habits of riding one at a time and not parking at the base of avalanche prone slopes, the number of fatalities would likely be whittled by at least a third, if not by half." ~ Jill Fredston, in the book Snowstruck, In The Grip Of Avalanches.
