@St0ll3n has been trying to break trail on Mt Emily Summit Road between I84 and 204. He said last week end (weekend before Easter) that he was breaking 3’ of drifts with 18” of hard pack. Also said that the snow was horrible...Has anyone tried getting out into the hills anywhere yet this year? Curious what snow levels are looking like around the area, east or west of here. Heard from a friend of a friend that snow level is around 3300' trying to get up to Bethel ridge. Looking to get out for a weekend, might just have to head south while I wait for the usual areas to melt off.
Correction, We haven't made it up summit yet. That area has still been open for skii and other over snow activities. It will be a couple of weeks or so before that area will be impassible for those users. A friend was up there on skiis and spent a good portion of his trip walking.
All of our travels have been on the south west side of the freeway. The spring creek area, and down twords the Lehman Hot springs area(usfs 54). The above is true about portions of these areas.
