- Winter is waning and spring is approaching with warm daytime temperatures.
- Methow trails will groom through March 15. Check their website www.methowtrails.org for more info.
- Backcountry skiing is done at lower elevations. Hwy 20 is still closed at the Early Winters Gate so a snowmobile is required to access skiing.
- WS DOT crews will probably begin working on clearing snow in late March or early April. Low snow levels should mean opening before the end of April.
- Local crags in Mazama are mostly snow free. Climbers will find dry conditions on the Sun Slab at Fun Rock as well as at the Matrix and Europa. Even Prime Rib is climbable with only small amounts of snow on ledges.
- Biking is available on roads now and, after March 15, all nordic trails will be available for fat bikes. Stop by to rent a fat bike for awesome spring riding!
