Road Conditions Update

While roads have been plowed (except for Spruce Road behind the Inn), please be aware that they will continue to be icy, snowy, slushy, and muddy for several weeks.

It is best to stay off the roads as much as possible this time of year while we wait for things to melt and dry off. At our elevation in springtime (just like the ski areas), the weather is unpredictable; for example, we got 5-6” of snow over the weekend and lots of wind. There is still plenty of snow on the ground. That can be hard to visualize when you’re looking at the flowers blooming and the trees leafing out in your yard in the lower elevations. That’s the difference in the high country. Please be patient, careful and safe.
