Profile Creek Road: Summit still closed. Fresh snow June 10. Last update (June 6) Matt cut the big cottonwood across Profile road (in report below) – passable with truck and trailer. Snow makes it impassable just above the Red Metals Mine (about 1/2 mile past gate.)
Old report from (June 2) Lois & I came out of Big Creek on June 2, 2018 & can share the following. Except for about 1 mile on both sides of Profile Gap the Big Creek to Yellow Pine road is clear of snow. There is about 3 feet of snow at Profile Gap. There are lots of trees down, but they have all been cut wide enough to pass an ATV, and most will allow a car to pass through. There is a large cottonwood tree down across the Profile Road about one mile from the EFSF Road. This tree has been cut wide enough to pass cars & pickups but might not pass long trucks or vehicles with trailers, because it is on a curve. For folks that prefer to see the conditions visually there is a video at the following link:
Note: The elevation at Profile summit is 7607 feet.
