How much BRP is open...

...between Boone NC and Roanoke VA? Got stuck down by Ashville a couple of weeks ago and thought I'd check the way before hand this time. BRP website not very helpful.

Did they close for ice/snow? I'd call them directly, never know what's going on up there.

Have you seen this??
http://www.nps.gov/blri/planyourvisit/roadclosures.htm

"These closures can be fast-changing and are updated on our park information line at (828) 298 0398."


FYI, if you come to Roanoke via the BRP during a week day, you will hit some road repair once you start down the mountain heading to the Roanoke Valley. Nothing major though, just a short delay.

Thanks!

Just got back. The Parkway was open with the exception of just before Boone/Blowing Rock.
