    Default The plough crews have some work to do this year.

    The ploughing effort usually gets underway around April 15th each year, just a few days from now. It looks like they have a heck of a lot of work ahead of them to get the pass open !

    Here is a great photo of the east entry kiosk showing just how much snow was on the pass at March 11th 2019 !
