thanks for the update, and let's hope they do it!! our group is beginning to despair, considering other non permitted floats to do in the area, but I'm more of the opinion to make it in somehow or other!
so is there a snow cat operation in the area? I wonder if they could plow it, or drag/shuttle a trip in or out? I was thinking a raft sled dragged behind the cat??
I don't actually know anything about the road, I hear it's 13 miles, heavy 4WD? and snowed in. sounds from your desc like it has two passes that stay snowed in??
best of luck on your own trip, I think marsh creek is totally out as an option for any of us.
