      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Marble mtn sno-park conditions? st. helens.

Recommended Posts

Wanting to head up to helens. How Much snow is on the sno-park? is it plowed? Looking for someone who has been there recently. I know a LOT of snow has fallen lately. It's been clear of snow for several weeks now

the sno-park should be plowed as that is what the over-priced washington sno-park pass is suppose to pay for. i am sure there are some sledders whove been waiting and waiting to get their rigs out in the area so im sure they've been happy to have the snow level finally drop and get access there too.

april 9th listing on forest service web page says that due to snow the road is closed ~6 miles from marble mnt snow park--you can only partially get up 83.

 

ahhhh... i see WA only services snoparks until the 31st of march. bet they saved a bundle this year with low snow. hope so at least.

The way I understand it there is a specified amount alocated to each sno-park. When it is used up, no more plowing. It is a private contractor that does the work at MSH. $43 for a season, $21 for a day pass! Those of us in SW Washington are paying to keep the I-90 coridor open. I will try to get a current road report.

I called and they said they only contract the plowing until the end of March. In April it's up to good old chemistry to plow the roads. As of last weekend you ARE allowed to "try it" if you think your vehicle can make it up the road. But if you get stuck you'll be the asshole who's blocking the road.

that's why it is so cool that the Oregon Sno Park pass works there as well. And the Oregon one is WAYYYYYYYY cheaper. :wazup:

The Oregon permit will not work with Washington plates in a Washington State Sno-Park. I get a head ache every time I try to reason it out!
