CR361 Gate closed at 3.5 miles (9,300‘) Sign says Avalanche Danger extreme. The road is actually plowed for the next 4 miles where you split right to go up to Yankee Boy. You will not need snowshoes for those first few miles but definitely necessary after. Bring a helmet because human sized ice chunks are breaking off from above and crashing intot the road everywhere. At the lower TH, the snow is over 8‘ deep and there was tons of fresh natural avy activity on Saturday Night.
