|Rare Mountain Glimpse|
|W. Baumann Assessing Conditions|
All isn't lost though. There are many areas above Paradise that are not in dangerous avalanche terrain, but travel will be tough! Earlier today big skis were easily sinking over a foot deep and people on foot had snow to mid-thigh. Skis or snowshoes are a must if you want to get out beyond the parking lot. Be aware that the road above Longmire is being closed at night right now and will open in the AM pending road conditions. This could be anywhere from 7:00 onward, be sure to check road conditions before you drive up.
