      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!

NF23 melt out?

Recommended Posts

I know as of end of April that the road was still closed due to snow

but was curious when this road typically opens? Or when those familiar with the area think it might open this year? Seems the melt is on early this year...

 

the closest SNOTEL site seems to be this one at Potato Hill

which is still showing about 3'.

 

Hoping this might clear up by mid-June... will watch that snotel site, but curious if any locals had good info?

 

thanks

Erik

Mid June would be early-ish for it to be open IME. It's definitely the fastest way to go to Trout Lake though.
