Question is, is there any protocol for those about to lose permits for this year for securing a launch next, sort of like they do with the GC?

Since I didn't draw one this year, hell no! Rub of the green, as a golfer might say. I just hope we'll be able to go on my friend's post-lottery permit in September.

I have a 7/25 Main. And weeks ago I would not have even considered a mid summer launch could be in jeopardy, but now....

Banner's at 83% with 20' SWE today and looks like a relativley dry and warm spell coming over the next few weeks.

Still closed so I'm sure no one has been up there to see the road. Any thoughts on a potential update to the 4/30 closure happening soon?

I expect the closure for May will be issued soon. Politicians are feeling the power and control. The media eats it up. The question is really not May, but June now. I hate to place the odds for June, but maybe 50/50?

Crazy to think that storm had 3"+ of SWE in it. That's a LOT of snow.

Agree, and for similar reasons. And if not for power, none of them want to be seen as the "one who didn't do enough" should they re-open things and then it goes south.

I've pretty well written off May, and thinking 50-50 for June.
Hell, this will be the first year in 13 I may not be able to run the Lochsa.
I R sad.

I went to the daily briefing at our hospital this morning to learn what is new in the coronavirus world. Idahos stay at home order is set to expire in 2 days.

over the weekend the governor had a teleconference with all the hospital CEO's in Idaho and the consensus seems to be to extend the stay at home order.

There was also a teleconference with the elected officials who are pushing to not extend the stay at home order for the sake of their communities economy. I'm guessing the health care will win out on this one and a extended closure is coming.

That just matches the Salmon-Challis NF's order to close campgrounds and launch facilities.

Still holding my breath!
