I drove out to cataract and etherinton area is morning, the was 2 sleds left from etherinton and no one at cataract.Not a bunch of snow but enough for some people. On my way out i meet 7 sleds heading inn.It was socked inn and snowing light when i was there.Not all of the water ways are frozen over,there must be a rig passed the gates at cataract as i seen 2 water trucks, and best of all i seen a big ram down on the road on way inn i would say he was close to legal what a sight and of course i did`nt take a camera or gps to see if it would track the trip oh well.
We went yesterday and there was not much snow anywhere the least I have seen for this time of year down there. On top of Wilkinson Summit there was about 2 feet with a good base but real s&*##y getting there. Atleast we were able to try out the sleds, hopefully in a couple of weeks it will be better.
That would be my truck you saw etherington this morning. it was good and bad out there. found some rocks we had to go through down low, but higher up trails were snow covered and fresh when we were there. maybe 8-10 inches with some drifts being a bit deeper still. but, no base either of course. good day to break in the new engine.
I took another drive out to cat and ether and well it did get some fresh snow maybe 3-5 inches i guess, WOW we hit a chinook about 20 k west of longview it was warm and rainning.With the warm weather the snow that fell had settled but was better then the day before.
Was out there last weekend (Sunday)and there was about 10 - 12 inches up in the hills. No one has been up the pass yet. Had to go back out on Monday and there was about 1 1/2 feet at the road closure. It has been snowing all week there. I will be in there Saturday and will post again.Hey thats us in the pic above
