Got it. Glad you kept going. You rode the best part of the road, IMHO. Today there were seemingly hundreds of church youth groups in Ford vans and not a single other biker. WTF

Parking lot just before gate going up to the mine.
A friend of mine said he almost got to the Lucky Shot coming in from Willow side. Day before yesterday.

It typically doesn't open until July 1.

If I wasn't heading out of town this weekend I would take my rock skis and shorts and do some spring skiing up there. Sounds like they plan to have the road open by the 4th of July.

True. Roads were in great shape, I had first tracks up after the road crew finished grading it, so it was a little squirrely in places, especially on the Willow side.

Took the Multi up the pass today in a light rain with the street tires. It was a little greasy in spots, but made it up and back with no drama.

It was a beautiful day once the sun came out.
