Silver summer ski season is in session!  Road is drivable past the switchbacks and more. We found 3" corn slush on west facing slopes 5-7pm.  Stickiness was only moderate.

Start and end from Windy Pass....USGS Lost Lake quad or Green Trails Snoq. Pass.

Happy Solstice,

"Windy Pass" isn't a USGS designation -- but it is the moniker used by the Summit Nordic Center (and it is an accurate description)

This tricky part this time of year is finding the start of the road -- here is a hint -- follow your nose -- you'll pass by something very stinky right after you leave the pavement and hit the gravel.

It also is a Green Trails Map designation (Map # 207 and Map #207S), which combined with the USGS Quad mentioned above (my personal choice) provides excellent navigation and location tools for the area.
