For those of us that don’t do Facebook what’s it about?Saw this posted on Friends of Kings Peak Facebook page:
Thanks for that! But.... sigh.It says,
“Okay just checked. Currently 47 inches at snotel site below Elkhorn Crossing (bridge). About a foot a week melt out so at least a month until trail is clear to the bridge. It’s going to be a long while until you can do the peak without snow.”
Ooh, ooh! It’s a start!From the US Forest Service:
Heber-Kamas Ranger District gate across Mirror Lake Highway (Highway 150) is open, (so the snowmobilers and skiers can access the area), but there is still a Road Closed/No Winter Maintenance sign on the road. Snow levels higher up Hwy 150 make it impassable to vehicles. Depth at Bald Mountain is 83 inches. Depth at Trial Lake is 68 inches. No campgrounds are open yet. Trails are either still under snow or are mud/snow/ice/water mixes. The road to Strawberry Marina is clear, mostly, but the marina is not open yet. Access to Chicken East is also open. Wolf Creek Pass road open to junction with Mill Hollow road.
Correction, @WasatchWill. Just read the post at the USFS FB page and this is actually the outhouse at Bald Mountain Pass - a thousand feet or more higher. Just wanted all to know.
