Good new

Roads are open No chains (although this can change at any time) at this time all the way to Big Pines.  It is still snowing we received 3-4 inches last night so snow play is good the best we have had this year.

Please respect private property and do not play there.   You will also need an Adventure Pass $5.00 per day or $30.00 for a year we can supply that for you. Please remember to always pick up and take home any trash as this will make it nicer for the next visitor.
