The USFS is very aggressive about plowing the road open by the start of permit season. I think in 2011 they were delayed by a few days or even longer because of the deep snow. While our snowpack is huge, it is not huge in the mid and lower elevations so much. It will definitely not be open for an April 29 launch.
