Elk Pass is now free of snow. Yesterday, the Cascade ride organizer spoke with the road engineer for FR25, who reported that the road is clear of snow and debris “fog line to fog line”. However, the gates are still closed to motorized traffic. The road does have slumps, bumps and cracks present, but these hazards are present even when the road is open.
A Cascade volunteer will be taking a ride through the closed section on Tuesday and report back, at which point we will make a final decision. But for now, our operating assumption is that Elk Pass is a GO.
Stay tuned for more details to come.
