mf boundary creek road.

Here is a pic from last week. There is tons of snow on banner and I don't see the road opening anytime soon. I've personally opened the road once in may and its much too high for that now. I'll be driving by banner tomorrow and I will have a better idea for you. Here is a pic I took last week.

So this looks to be Banner Summit, not the Boundary Creek turnoff??

Just to be clear.

My thoughts exactly, too. Be nice to see pic of turnoff to B.C., although another guide over there said the report coming out of the trees is that there is still 4ft + on most of the road, and 3 slide paths of considerably more depth. Sounds like a little midnight "assisted melting" might have to occur.

Yeah that's banner. Bc is covered as well. I highly doubt it will be open soon. You're all more then welcome to go in and shovel. Our first trip is flying in at this point.

When's your first launch? We have a June 13 permit, and are just keeping our fingers crossed everything melts out at this point. We would probably not fly in nor run Marsh, especially if Dagger is still log-clogged by then.

I think it will be open by the 13th for sure, I'd venture a guess that it will be open by the 9th or so.

thanks IRG for the update photo. That looks a lot better than one I saw about a week ago. Another night of no freeze at the Banner snotel too. Looking good.

Just got back from a cold, rainy/snowy self-support on the W.Fork Bruneau/Bruneau and looked at the MiFork guage for while we were gone..... wow, unusual to see it dropping over 4 days in late May like that. Any new news on the road????? Still hoping to get in there on June 12 for a 13th launch.
