Good news!! The north while remaining officially closed does have the hole filled so you don't have
to drive off the road to get past it. The north pass
has some snow and ice at the top. You probably should
have four wheel drive high clearance with good strong
tires but two wheel high clearance would probably make
it with good traction tires. Grading is being done from the bottom of the valley out both ways. It should
take 3 weeks to finish all the road north south and valley providing the weather does not go bad. Some bumps and holes on north side. South side is in better
shape than north at this point. Watch out for road
equipment as up to four graders are working their way
out. So the north is passable with the right vehicle
it is just not officially open. Right now some of the
equipment is out of the valley for maintenance but they will be back to finish the job.
