Road Report March 11

Note: Winter road conditions change quickly. Be prepared for icy roads, snow at high elevations and rocks/trees falling in the road. Please share road reports.

Yellow Pine: We had quite a bit of rain from Thursday’s storm, then warm dry weather the last 2 days. Currently an average of 13″ of snow on the flat, less on south facing slopes and under trees in the forest. Local streets are icy early morning, then starting to get a little slushy during the heat of the day, refreezing at night. Seeing a few bare spots on the roads and getting some breakup here and there.
