    It varies, but your best opportunities are earlier in the morning. It fills up fast if the snow is good.

    Very packed. Many people drive in on Fridays and camp. Go early, and you still might end up parked out on the road. Which isn't so bad, as you just take off into the swamps from there.
    "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.

    Park on the Parks at 127(or is it 129) the rest area. A lot less traffic, groomed very well most times, miss most of the the traffic getting out into the back country. Bad part you are about 10 miles further out from the better backcountry riding.
