Snoqualmie pass area.
The road that goes tup to Windy pass to give PCT and Silver peak access.
Anyone drive up there in the last few days? I am wondering about whether the road is snowed-in, or clear?

Thanks

IDK,

But the Ollalie Meadows SNOTEL station is reporting an inch of snow depth ATM.

I don't know either.  The DOT camera isn't showing any snow at Snoqualmie Pass itself, for what it's worth.

Here's report from Mirror Lake today which is nearby with a trailhead about the same elevation. I only see a little snow. You should make it fine.

Not completely snow free but passable. Inch or so on the road above the second switchback

I ended-up driving up to Windy Pass this past Sunday. A few places where the little snow there was was hard-packed, very slippery, but it didn't pose a problem. One place was badly eroded and had some big-ish rocks jutting-up, but in a Subaru Outback we experienced no problems. Some folks that had cars with less ground clearance stopped and parked at the corner just before this part of the road, and walked the rest of the way.
