As far as I can tell, this is the Forest
Service, not the municipal department of snow removal. I like the fact that its not Disneyland and variable conditions require problem-solving. Commercial outfitters as well as private boaters all have choices to make when nature deals up variable (but not unexpected) conditions. There's always Marsh Creek. Perhaps the outfitter should have said 'I sure am thankful that the FS maintains the airstrip at Indian Creek so I have options for my customers.'
That being said, I sure hope the road opens before 6/18!
