Road Report for Opener
« on: April 08, 2018, 08:13:19 PM »
I know there was some late snow this year so was wondering what the status of Rock Creek Road is and if it is plowed up to the lake yet.  Just wondering if it would be open for the season at the end of the month.  Thanks
The creek is waiting...

Rock Creek Lakes Facebook page stated there is significant rainfall expected to hit which would lead to rapid snow melt affecting the Sierras above 10,000 feet.  Not sure how this would affect the road.  May fill the lake though.

2. PM 6.9 to PM 9.9 immediately south of Tom's Place

Under normal weather conditions the work will be completed in 25 working days.

I drove to the Pack Station this morning. Unless we have a real freak storm, the road is open. Ice on the Lake, open water at the inlet, outlet and Group Camp. Only a couple feet of snow left after the rain last weekend.
