Faster than light

I was up there more than a month ago.  After several miles the road was covered in snow, with a pair of tire tracks worn down to the pavement.  The road was no longer drivable after 8 miles, at the first official campground.  Icy, slippery snow.

I'd love to know what it's like now - how far you can drive in an average clearance car, what the snow is like there.  I called the Marblemount Wilderness Information Center, but they haven't opened for the season yet.

It's a week old, but someone posted on Cascade Climbers:

"As of Sunday snow starts at milepost 13. It's continuous and too deep for a forester for the next mile, then patchy discontinuous with long melted out sections til milepost 17.5. Then continuous the rest of the way to cascade pass trailhead."

Oh man.  I'm wanting to ski from the upper closure to the trailhead.  Sounds like I better get busy before that last section melts!

Thanks for the update Walkin' Fool!  🙂
