4-19-17 Paradise Open 24/7, sort of

After two days of no tweets, today's seems a bit confused:  "Unless conditions permit...Huh...the gate at Longmire to Paradise will remain open 24/7"  https://twitter.com/MountRainierNPS/status/854733273888563200

"April 21, 2017 Update
Plowing has begun on Steven’s Canyon Road and Paradise Valley Road. Plowed roads are currently closed to vehicles, ­­bicycles, and recreation. It is not safe to enter these areas..."
https://www.nps.gov/mora/planyourvisit/spring-opening.htm

Looks like I and several hundred others have already violated this policy.  If 'recreation' precludes carrying skis to/from 4th Crossing until June 23rd, this is not acceptable!

Estimated road openings:
Cayuse & Chinook Passes - May 19th
Stevens Canyon -  May 26th
Paradise Valley Road - June 23rd
Mowich & Sunrise - June 30th
