2018 - Boundary Creek Road Opening?

I have a MFS permit for May 26. I know its early to say and alot of things can change between now and then but when does the boundary creek road open on an average year? It looks like the snowpack is 95% of average right now at Banner Summit. Anybody care to offer some guesses?

Folks - please use this thread for all Boundary Creek opening posts. If you see someone else posting the same topic, please refer them to this thread so we keep all the discussion in one place.

Mike - I think it's all going to be wild guesses this early but as we get closer, things will certainly come into focus.

Thanks,

- AH

May 27....

Things are starting to clear up down low, under 3000 feet. You might get in..

It needs to warm up and I got a wonder if its going to be wet this year??

It's going to come down to how motivated the shovelrs are. I personally am very unmotivated to move snow so we will fly in with G&S out of cascade on May 20 and do MFS/MS in 7 days. The best part is the vehicle shuttle is cheap.

We launch 5/27, hoping for an open road, but will run Marsh if necessary.

Would “turning the corner” in 8 days be a possibility for a crew of mostly rafts launching June 9?

You could always do an Indiana Jones "fly in".
